Poor's Do Dream



It is a busy Monday morning
I'm getting ready to school
Mumma is preparing lunch for me
Dadda is ironing my uniforms
I got into the school bus
Had a hearty chit chat with my friends
And entered my class room enthusiastically
I am the brightest in the class
And so my teacher's pet
Dadda wants me to be a doctor
Mumma says that i should be a engineer
But my dream is to become a scientist
Who splashes water in my face?
Why is mumma calling me?
Where am I?
Oh! i'm just laying in a mat
In our small bamboo hut
Mumma is waking me up
Hum its time to go to work
Need to work in the fields
To win our daily bread
Opps! Its all a dream
Will my dreams come true???????
