Remember those days, back in school?
When in early morn,
While the sun was gone,
you still saw a silhouette of the moon.
When on rainy days,
you couldn't laze,
because it was always 'time for school.'
So you dragged yourself from bed to shower,
And go from nada to yahaa in half an hour...
And then wait on the ramp of your house,
In your crispy school uniform and a blouse.
Under an umbrella, with paa,
Who'd be drenching himself like an old film staa,
and you'd wait, and you'd wait and you'd wait,
For the school bus that's never usually late.
And then, like nuclear codes whispered into the cordless phone,
You waited for disaster to occur, for you lived in an earthquake zone.
and from two doors away, there'd be confirmation,
the neighbours added on to rumours of cancellation.
Is it, is it, is it really what you're thinking
The cloud has burst, the school is sinking!
Is it, is it, is it a holiday day?
One that you really need after May.
Indeed, for the school is drowning in water,
and father let go of the umbrella from over his daughter.
And you don't know what to do, for you've never been up at this hour at home,
But you still like pizza even though you've never been to Rome.
Today feels like one of those rainy days,
there's clouds, there's rain, not much sun rays...
Just a different time, different people, different space. *
*keep rambling my mindless mind.*
