School by Abdul Wahab



In front of a table there is a crow
Besides it sits a monkey with its tail coiled
In the same line is a penguin, a dolphin
A fox, a fish in a jar and at end there is an elephant
This is not a circus
Neither is it a jungle
It is a complete school under a well branched tree
And under its shade sits a man, a teacher on a chair
He teaches as he was taught
Like a parrot teaches another parrot
No wrong see in it who is not genius
But he is asked to take a test to gauge how genius they are
And he gladly asks every one either to climb a tree or swim an ocean
Here the heaven falls and all the terrible things are out of the hell
Now a genius looks like fool and a stupid look like brilliant
Such is the sorry state
Not only of our so called well developed education system
But also it is in our political and social spectrum.
