Theme: Comedy

For Ladies Only...

Fabulous offer:
One of its kind - husbands on sale!

In a six-floor complex
men with exceptional quality
and endearing attributes are showcased,
ladies can visit, have a look and shop.

Terms and conditions
are flexible but can’t be relaxed for any,
Women can go up floor by floor
but can’t come down,
As one goes up
the attributes of men are added up, too.

Ladies – elegant and pretty,
turned up for the occasion,
in large numbers and in plenty;
Enthusiasm pitched high,
even among them who drove by…

Sign reads on Floor One:
God-fearing and has job,
on the next floor, in addition to these
he loves the kids.

‘Oh great,’ ladies of elegance thought,
‘the kids shall feel blessed.’
The sign of the third floor,
‘Man is handsome, too.’
‘Romance shall get top priority,’
thought the socialite.

On the next floor
The Sign is startling –
Besides being ‘drop dead good looking’,
the man shall help with the homework.
‘Oh, Mercy Me! I can hardly believe,
it is like without being stung to hold a beehive.
Yet what stops me to climb one flight up?’

On Floor Five, men, besides having all these,
possess a romantic streak;
Ladies for a moment decided to go for them,
but greed took over and someone sang,
Dil Mange More – something more may be in store.’
With this dream in mind
they take the last plunge
to find the last floor empty.
The lady ruffled her curls
and in deep disappointment
saw she was the visitor No. one million twenty four
on the last floor.

Sign on Floor Six: Thank you,
Thank you ladies for shopping at our husband store.
Take care, watch out your steps as you step out.
Have a nice day!

Desert sands can reflect only the mirage,
it shall not quench the thirst of any,
greed and need are flames of two different kinds,
one burns the inner being and in another peace one finds.
