THE REAL PAYMENT

An invitation came from outside

for my senior.

Suddenly both of his kidneys stopped activity-

the disturbance was major.


Enough money was collected

as the flame of candle was about to extinguish.

I would denote one kidney-

his mother’s only wish.


The operation was successful,

both are now fine.

The recovered man is doing a job here,

trying hard to shine.


In front of him a huge door was shut up forever-

now his statement:

‘Will I ever get such a scope,

ever receive the real payment’?
