Success at last!!
After a gruelling three hours of disciplinary action against my creative block, here's the outcome :) Not much considering the effort it required, but hey, its a respectably decent beginning!
Once there was, this third world place
Of crowded streets, little food and many a face.
A software town - home of the wicked and wise,
Outsourced jobs et al - the kind the First World despised.
'Twas here she lived , an ambitious yokel
Protagonist, an atheist - star of this fable.
Prepped for a job, she joined the workforce
Of a start-up firm - IT services of course!
And so her quest began; project-on-site her goal
Equivalent to, a frenzied spell at her console.
She IMed and worked, and then IMed some more.
Volunteered, networked, made friends galore.
Even then found the time to pine and to yearn
For all things in the First World she was yet to learn.
Finally, a smiling Karma and six months after
Found our yokel headed for the good 'ol Nor'Easter.
With arms wide open, for long the West had beckoned
Yet the charm wore out, sooner than she had reckoned!
Amidst cooking fumes and curries of lunch for the morrow
Our yokel pined again for her old home in sorrow.
N'er a happy ending is there to this tale
For the heart wants what it wants, regardless of locale!
