Confirmation

© Written by Tarang Sinha










What!?
What did you say?
What are you saying?
Really?
Are you sure?
These are some expressions
People generally exclaim
Hearing problem is not to blame
Like confirmation tests in
Chemistry labs
People often press
The confirmation tab
Sometimes it seems essential
Sometimes okay
Sometimes irritating and
Sometimes funny
A girl in her coaching center
Asked the next schedule of her class
From her very devoted mentor
“Come tomorrow at 3 o’clock”
Said the sir
“3 o’clock? In the afternoon, sir?”
The girl tried to confirm.

(A teacher cannot be so devoted to teach at 3 o’clock at night. Can he?)
