When I sit down thanks write the mind drifts away,
I cajole it to focus on the theme, but it audaciously refuses,
The pending chores or those of the next day, suddenly gain limelight,
And, then I get vexed, admonishing my elfish mind for troubling me,
But, no, it doesn’t care, it doesn’t love me like I love it,
Then, I fool it with emotional blackmailing, with a despondent face,
Lo! The trick works, I’m getting its complete attention.
