palpable paucity of personal pleasure

overstrained, overstretched and overworked

exhaustive daily schedules and chores

a mad run to discharge their duties

a crazy rush to settle their scores

mutilated mechanical monotonous life

the keenness for retrieving leisure

the over busy diary of daily events

palpable paucity of personal pleasure

is this the living we wished to endure

is this a real or a virtual subsistence

is this the melodramatic tragedy called life

or is this the sheer purpose of our existence
