Daydreams In The Classroom
Half open eyes still full of last night's sleep,
I barely stay alert till the roll call's done,
And once verified that am physically present
Into my virtual world I take the leap.
The scene around disappears in a haze,
Cacophony dims down to a background buzz,
My pen starts working patterns in the copy,
As I weave in & out of my personal maze.
Will that guy ever realize I have this crush on him?
Should I apologize & speak to her again?
Will Mom advance me cash if I beg?
May be I shouldn't give in to every whim?!
Wouldn't it be nice if I lived in a book?
Some heroine of a "happily ever after" story,
Forget the Prince,I'd rather have a new wardrobe
And a castle and maids and my own cook!
That saree is new,hope she doesn't catch me as I stare,
Oh! Look,she's got matching accessories too,
Wish she could teach with a matching perfection though,
She might be speaking Hebrew for all I care!
There's a hullabaloo,as the teacher is gone.
Don't they make 45min periods any more?
All rise & greet the next teacher,
And I patiently wait as my roll call's done!
