Hey ! What has happened why are you huffing and puffing?
Miss, Tom and Nicky are fighting badly, boxing and kicking
They were eating their tiffins, argued, shouted, now grappling
Tom grabbed Nicky’s collar, Nicky brawled, both went rolling
Girls passed comments, seniors hooted while juniors were clapping
We Â intervened but in vain, threatened them, there was no stopping
We felt helpless thus came to you, Miss please go stop them fighting
I was shocked, felt like Uncle Bob, rushed to sort out the differences
Why I have to be dragged every time Â in children’s nuisance and tiffs
Â We teachers have to behave like consolers, counselors, arbitrators
Here I come, “Nicky leave Tom, Tom stay away, both of you come to office
What went wrong? Forgot all manners? This is what I taught you? Say sorry
Nicky simply said to Tom
That was the end of my role as Uncle Bob.
