But - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul
Dear children! Don't say always ‘but'
Obey your mum and dad, never say ‘not'
Our parents do speculate well for us,
We should obey them and we should boss.
Sometimes mother says, "Read and write",
You say, "Mum! I shall do but wait a bit".
Father says you to purchase thing from shop,
You say, "Daddy I shall buy but give me a top".
Your granny says you to sing a song,
You say, "Yes, but tell us story of gong".
Your brother tells you to close the door,
You say, " Yes, but wait a little more".
Boss says assistant to work out a task,
Assistant says, "I shall do but let me ask".
This ‘but' gives sudden shock to reputed person,
Without uttering this word go on progression.
Dear children! "Neither say ‘No' nor say ‘but',
Never say I will do letter, never be hot.
Always say, ‘yes papa, yes mama, I can do this,
Be polite, obedient to superiors and get bliss.
