The Helpless Domestic

The pale, yellowish face,
With a slender figure,
Depicts the identity,
Of a domestic maid,
her miniature structure,
With a cumbersome,
Plastic bag in one hand,
And a baby in other hand,
Running from,
One place to another,
To earn a penny or two,
Bringing Vegetables,
Finishing the household chores,
Dealing with an,
Alcholic husband,
Getting baffled by them
Perspiring incessantly,
In the,
Hot scorching Indian summer,
Embracing the rains,
And moving on,
In life,
With a smile,
On her face.
