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.
