Class Of Sixty Four

Rating: 4.6
'Twas on a gloomy day early in the year of Fifty Four
Forty young lads assembled in an emotional out pour
First day in school was a frightening experience to all
Some had wet their pants even before reaching the door.

(chorus)
Some were crying, some were wailing
And none had a clue what was happening
Some were crying, some were wailing
But none had a clue what they're doing

Loke, this is a classic poem. A life that spans from school going kid to an elderly citizen. Hidden behind the humour is a deep philosophy. How the change affects a man. A classic 10 for this curry mee curry noodles poem of wit.

Thanks Geeta for going so far back, this was one of my earliest attempt and was written on being requested by the members of my class for a reunion.

Wise and wonderful humor is shared with memory of sixty four school. What an amazing explanation this gives really. Having get-together we can have fun at school at any time with learning...10

Oh my gosh! I'm smiliing large since I see vividly the reality and the happiness in this royal piece of yours. You have taken us on a journey of life and did not leave us in sadness but etched smiles on our faces and that's a refreshing theme to read in expressions of old age poetry. Thank you so much for such an amazing poem Loke Lok Yee.....

A very humorous write with so much of truth! Yes, the first few days of our education in school will be one of crying and wailing! But soon we find friends and the scenario totally changes! The friendships formed there may last a life time! There may be drop outs and students who may not get into the next grade! Thus the number thins down. Once we leave the portals of school and college, everyone will be scattered here and there! But the get together after several years is again an experience that will be etched deep in memory! Unfortunately during the last get together, many may not be able to recollect why they have come! The whole reel of my education got replayed before me! Enjoyed thoroughly!

Thank you for taking the trouble to cover all my poems, looks like I will have to sit down and do some composing! . By the way, most of my poems are written just for a laugh, and not to be taken too seriously. Thanks again.
