Back Bencher

Updated on March 19, 2011

I am a back bencher.

I prefer to sit at the last seat.

I try never to let the teacher get bothered by me,

And my notebooks are always kept very neat.


I can use one notebook through out the year,

And still it will not be complete.

The ending pages will definitely have scores of sketches,

I belong to a class, very elite.


Generally, I am not found in any class.

Even if I am there, I am not seen.

Mostly sleeping, sometimes playing,

That is how I have always been.


I don’t think about the future.

Present is all for me.

My father is always angry about my complaints,

Oh! Let him be.


Year long, I enjoy myself thoroughly.

But get busy during the examinations.

My photocopy bills soar high and high,

My cramming speed goes far beyond imagination.


I scrape off my brain to get passing marks.

And then my dad becomes the avenger.

But there is no effect on me, I remain the same,

Because, I am a back bencher.

      I love this laid back response to education. I actually think that anyone who follows this has greater intelligence than the plodder who attends every lecture and still only gets just over the pass mark.

      hey,this is good stuff and I can really empathise with being a back bencher because I was one myself for few years! Its fun to be a back bencher. I use to write poems and shayaris...real creative and funny stuff and made great friends too who were back benchers like me!
