C/O Society



Have you noticed how every pair of eyes turns to her,

When she enters the staff room?

Yes. I am talking about our new colleague, Mrs. Roy.

Don’t you know she is a widower?

I don’t understand why she uses so much makeup,

And just look at her choice of dresses! Good heavens!

Tell me Mrs. Bagchi

Am I wrong if I am saying so?

After all, a widow should know her limits.

These are all traps you see,

Beautiful ladies are not trustworthy.
