They say our life is happy – so full of fun,
They call it advices when they point a gun,
Dad says ‘you only have to study – why can’t you’
Dear elders –wait a while, come and wear into my shoe!
Unit test are coming up –beware,
You must study till late-learn and prepare!
Don’t be coward – you are on the soccer field,
Bend like Beckham you must win a shield!
Oratory is the art of public speaking
you must participate, it’ll be interesting!
The quizmaster is confusing, you see,
Go through Telegraph, Statesman and Graphiti!
Late to bed and early to rise,
You say will make me brilliant and wise.
You were absent yesterday go and meet the clerk,
I will kick you out of the class, if you don’t do the home work!
Don’t get distracted be steady like the stars – look,
Go for tuitions – forget the hi5, Orkut or Facebook!
We are your elders – we say for your good,
Better pay attention or you’d it – understood!
Now that you’ve taken a ride into our routine,
Let me show you the pictures that you’ve already seen!
So easy is our life that we are never at rest,
Today is elocution and tomorrow will be the test,
If we fail – dad receives a letter,
If we pass – we can still do better!
What hypocrisy is this – are we machines,
We have our lives – we have our dreams!
You’ve made the board dirty with your words – you must clean,
I’m sorry elders it was just the blood from the heart of a teen!!
