Satisfaction in One’s Own Design

Oh client,
Tell him your needs
He has the solutions
As always millions
And he knows the best one


Oh critic,
Call him obstinate
Write him arrogant
His limo’s longer
You can go fish


Oh God,
Take a holiday,
Your messiah’s here
Who condescends you
He’s more perfect


Oh conscience,
Don’t you deter
You have a role to play
Priorities and compromises
Ever to satisfy you.


Author’s Note: A poem about an architect’s feelings and satisfaction in his design /work irrespective of the hurdles he faces every time.
