Some friends bunk the class,
What is use of it,
If by YouTube, Wikipedia, you can pass.
Sitting in same room all day,
Listen to a person blabbering,
Student’s mind blowing away,
Can’t we ask why,
What not everyday is holiday.
Why we can’t stay at home,
In this age of internet,
Why we can’t stay with mom,
And study just through net.
This, seems to be the thinking,
That prevails in today’s world,
Classes are old fashioned,
Only for bookworms and nerd.
What about the other things,
The respect for your teacher,
The experience it brings,
The values we need to nurture.
Things that need human interaction,
Basic courtesy and respect for others,
Needed for the society to function,
Making friends and contacts,
To help in important life junction.
Are these not important any more,
Are these things, just a bore??
Present generation is smart and fast,
But they still face this dilema,
Weather to conserve or ditch the past.
