Down Here :
Mr B the Branch Manager of Bank A,
Is busy with closing work today,
For today being March 31st, is the last day
To balance all the books
By hook or by crook !
His targets all achieved,
His heart at peace, a smile on his face.
Suddenly,on the table,falls his head,
The staff realise—Mr B is DEAD !
The GM of the Bank,Mr C,
In his short condolence speech,
Praises Mr B for all his great deeds
And for what ever he achieved
As per the Bank’s prescribed target
He announces an incentive
From his own meagre budget,
To be paid to the heirs of Mr B !
“May his soul rest in peace” ends he.
Up There :
Up there goes soul of Mr B,
Dharamraj goes through three
Books of Accounts of Mr B
To decide whether he should be
Here, or shouldn’t he be !
He scans the ledger folio,
And is struck, as if by polio.
He sadly clicks his tongue
“Ah ! Mr B died so young !”
He asks “Yamaraj”- the bum,
“My dear,what have you done ?
This fellow was still to live for years five.
You’ve brought him so soon,
That’s really not nice !
Please submit you explanation,
Or be ready with your resignation !”
Yamaraj :” Sir, what could I do ?
I had to reach my year end targets too !
You had announced a performance bonus,
So I had to fulfill my onus !”
Scene – III :
Imagine the pandemonium up there,
Decide what was foul or fair,
And do write your own version,
Of the hilarious situation–
And if possible,suggest a solution.!!
( Note : In case some of the readers don’t know, for us Bankers, March 31st is our Annual Closing Day- Do or Die day !! )
