A Man With Big Heart

Poem By Asit Kumar Sanyal

When I was posted in Kolkata
One of my civilian bosses
fired me left and right
in a high voice
for my silly mistake
I lost my patience...
Answered to the same tune
in front of colleagues.
Office closed at 5.30 pm
I came out of the main gate
The boss was waiting outside
He caught my hand... said
Come, have a cup of tea
I said, inside you fighting like a bull
and outside offering tea
Are you all right sir?
He smiled, said...
Inside the gate, I am your officer
Outside a friend
Now have a cup of tea
Tomorrow I will fight again
If you mistake
I looked at his eyes
Saw.... he is a man with big heart.
I also learnt
What should be my behaviour with colleagues
at outside and inside.
