Who should be what and when?
I stood in wonder and cogitate
While mourning in my search for the truth.

Pupils say, they, they, they teach us lie
And teachers say this made us what we are
Do we learn towards childhood or pupil hood?
Or do we teach towards adulthood or teacher hood?

Pupils cannot and don’t want to attend

Teachers say pupils are never attentive nor punctual
Pupils say teachers are not punctual, oh! a mirror display response.

 Who is in pursued for assistance or help?
Often schools are disrupted
Pupils pointing teachers with their little fingers
Teachers pointing pupils with their huge fingers
Who should be learning?

Who should wait to be found to be helped?
I realized all are sick, But ….
