Trapped In A Chair

I am trapped in a chair
A monkey
I get paid for my life
Is there a price for life?
For time?
For youth?
How precious or useless is it?
I do not know.
I just don't.
I wait for the paycheck.
Every 5th of the month.
But I wish
Oh, how I wish.
I were in Ladakh.
But here I am
Trapped in a chair.

  2. Damn...
    the ultimate truth.
    thankfully i have a choice. not many people do. hence the trapped feeling.
    what i like about these poems is the deceptively simplistic style adopted to reveal such huge truths. there is also that tinge of tongue-in-cheek-almost-offensive-attitude, which is quite cool.

    Incredible...!
    :D
