Teaching online……

Kunjan Biswas

Tabs and Windows,
Screens and Apps;
Desktops in front,
Laptop on laps.

Network and Wi-Fi
mouse and pad;
Teachers today,
are really going mad!

Zoom and G.suite,
Online meetings,
Dull and yawning faces,
No smiles, no greetings.

Docs and Slides,
Sheets and Presentation;
Begging online,
to pay attention.

Quiz and exams,
Papers and test,
Smart generation
Fooling at their best!

Children abandoned,
Family left;
Angry glances,
still couldn’t disconnect!

Deadlines and Pressures
Papers and Submission;
Swollen eyes, aching backs,
a lot of exertion.

Beeping messages
Untimely call;
Yet, a real teacher
is always standing tall..!

Modern generation,
modern aspect,
Can we teachers
get little Respect………….???
