wrote the boss

the subordinate was at loss


it was inscribed in green

ink in the top corner 
of the first page


in rage he went 

to his boss but stopped

at the gate and mewed—


'Sir, may I come in'

the boss stared at him

and said—'yes


what's the matter?’

He meekly uttered—

'Sir, I didn't understand


what's the meaning 

of for n.a. please?’

The boss smiled 


and gently said—
'for necessary action please'

whatever it means.
