day 79 (September 4, 2016)

…..sharing tiffin
and homework
and class assignments
we assigned ourselves
to class
and resigned ourselves
from work
learning empirical logic
through
multiplication tables
and aryan myths
and national anthems
we thought our tantrums
would force them
to skip their incessant
exams
never dreamed that
those scores were
scouring deeper
than the radcliff line
dividing by percentiles
and solidifying
class reunions
years later
one percenters
meeting up here
to rant against
everyone who was still
a worker
all those same rituals
now habitual rites
of dual citizens
we still sharing
tiffin and
homework
and class
we still after all
fb friends

and yet…..
