Business As Usual

#1 Post by meenas17 » 21 Jun 2019, 07:54

Paucity of space
where I can store
gifts and presentations,
make my house unkempt.

The racks overwhelm.
Vessels,boxes and baskets
of all sizes and materials
might crash any moment.

I chalk out an anteroom
near my parlour. Must have
racks partitions to arrange,
along with nice ventilation.

Adding a room is not cheap
I find, The cost exceeds
the value of gifts by thousands.
Not wisdom, I understand.

It is quits for now,
I will revive, perhaps,
when the receivables
surpass the expenditure.

It is business you discern.

Do you really need racks partitions? Rack partitions,is not the same thing?
Nice ventilation.This'nice' is not a nice word for poetry.Please change the adjective.
I find, The cost exceeds ('the' instead of The.)
It is business you discern,(.)

This is funny Meena, we do spend too much
on our homes, hopefully we will
recoup our losses in time.

I take Siva's point, maybe 'partitioned racks' would be better.

Your choice.

L6 needs a space after the comma.

I know the situation. I like the humor.
