Happy Learning Dear!


I went to learning,
I joined as good as five car
Driving schools
One by one finished the driving course
They all wished me
Happy learning
And said bye.

My one problem is
I love to drive car.
Another problem is
Taking reverse, as
I find it difficult to look back
With my neck frozen.
Then searched solution myself
I always take two persons with me
One will look back and give direction
And other will look in all direction and tell

Again we three went in a long drive
Driving was good as long as no slope
My car was a special one
On seeing the slope
It just flow along with the slope
Backward direction only
Well nothing seriously happened
Just a few hits here and there
of the cars standing by
Just took all the shoutings
Smilingly and they emptied my purse
And said Bye Dear..
Said sorry and took U turn back.

Now I found a solution to
Take one more person
With me
Just to drive only on slopes

Still I love but my beloved took away
The keys
And said with a Harsh Warning....
Happy Learning Dear...
I will drive and You just sit Quietly!

While learning bicycle my friend asked me to focus on road
And don't look at those two people who are standing in foot path
I just got tempted to look at them and drove straight away into them.
And finally after hitting disappeared in no time
my poor friend got all those shoutings.

This case is true with me..I learned two wheeler all alone
but had a heavy fall and my poor friend landed with all fractures...
but..
What to do now all keys are Gone...
Leaving me alone
And telling me Happy learning Dear!

    An interesting poem, as far as learning is concerned we always learn after losing some thing. The final learning is death that we learn it after losing our life. (Report) Reply

    Well..I joined 4 car driving school. But reversing, I really found it too hard, it was true some one had to be nearby..then whenever slope comes, I am unable to manage and my did went backward...and got hit to the car behind..bicycle one was bitter experience for me, but learnt properly, as many does mistake while learning..I loved to driver 2 wheeler especially scooty, and drove also many times but after a heavy fall I just stopped.. I like to drive scooty, bicycle..but car still today is beyond my reach..May be I am not passionate in learning it. Thanks for lovely comments.. (Report) Reply

    I feel it as a political satire, The chief ruler and on either side evil advisers. No use of keys if n mental control and steering balance, We should have our own caliber to be victorious even if it is CM or PM.Driving is a good metaphor to Governing, It is equally good even if personal..

    I know this feeling because even I do not know how to drive. Tried to learn but just could not drive as my reflexes are too slow. Being frozen is the exact feeling. Nice poem and please take care of yourself if you ever drive. (Report) Reply
