A School Bus Broke Down


A school bus broke down
while passing through the village road,
in a single road with ups and downs;

The youthful children alighted down,
Enchanted by the fields around,
Jumped with joy and singing all around,
in tune with sparrow merry go round;

The accompanying school teacher
who missed the childhood pleasure
got irritated and said, 'Shut up'.
