The ordeal of Parcel Curie
I Am Parcel Curie

I’m Curie
The parcel by courier
Went round and the globe
From India to France senegel back and forth
To reach my owners son half the globe across.
Waitng eagerly to his mom’s
Loving sweets and gifts
Cookies crispy

An ordeal
My owner stuffed me
Airtight Pushing and padding
In hard board pack , water proof pouches
Pushing me strong tight to become small
Weighed, removed or added
Till I am slim and light
To norms

Read address wrong
They read CA as PA to toss
Me to Pennsylvania instead of California
Enduring months of untold misery I spent,
Weeping and cursing couriers
In my mute language
None heard

I reached months late
To addressee disheartened
Much to his surprise and delight
I landed at his door waiting for his
Warm hug and welcome
I heaved a sigh
Of relief
