“No,” I tell my mother blatantly,
I am not to take care of this naughty girl,
She gets me late for school everyday,
“Why?” mother enquires ,you start at least an hour early.’
‘She swings at every gate on the way ,
And talks to even crows and dogs that sway,
Oh, what a nuisance it is to be a boy these days.
Even worse to be older than the girl next door,
Worst. if your mothers are friends and you can’t refuse,
To be her bodyguard while going to school,
She chirps all the way to school,
Fights with the children on the way,
I grumble ,feel sheepish all the time,
Being bullied for chaperoning a girl ,
She fights with bullies, taking my side
Making me all the more ashamed ‘
Now her father is transferred and they are to go
My Philia ,I know how badly I will miss you,
Will be feeling lost all the way to school
Not just to school but to my life,
Till we get a chance to meet again.
