In the Boardroom

Excitement high
Gathering of the bigwigs
Discussion papers hang
With Blackberrys in their hands

Tension in the air palpable
Everybody in their nerves
Decisions are awaited
On issues that are long going to be served

Discussions begin
Gazes stern
Reasons demanded
Explanations provided turn by turn

Tea mugs poured in
Spreadsheets in discussion
Myriad proposals on the table
Pros and cons presented in every possible fusion

Papers ruffled with clammy palms
Some rejects but acceptances are high
With each passing agenda
The employees breathe a relieved sigh

Instructions doled out for the upcoming meet
Pens and diaries, how fiercely each other they greet
And then as the ends are drawn
Relief on faces finally starts to dawn


  1. I feel we do more meetings than actual work in the office...and all the time lost is unaccounted for.
    I work on weekends to recoup the lost time 😊

    1. Well meetings are important. Though yes sometimes they do take up unnecessary time.

  2. Hii Jyotsna
