The Teacher Said

The Teacher said

'Look, we write 'man' and they write 'Man''
The teacher said while the film is on
Nogeeb Ulla asked, 'why we are always run?
Is it a mistake in grammar or just for fun? '

'No, son, the man there is quite done;
Look at the films 'Batman' 'Superman' '
'Yes, sir I know but there reigns the demon man
The Kabolian doesn't know what to do with his hands
When he leaves his gun
Look, they went to the moon
They have torpedoes in our lagoon
They have arms tougher than the typhoon
They can listen to your phone calls and know downfalls in Rangoon
They are everywhere in Jerba in Japan and in here they may come soon
Who drives them out of here, who can do
who is stronger than the stinger of bee fifty two

Look sir I feel I am a boo
If I don't answer your question too
If I don't I will help them to carry on shuffling their sho
I feel myself on top of all tyrants when I hear Mactoom's call
Who is stronger when you hear 'mightier than all'
The statues of motionless deity had gone
So had the lofty budah in Bohemistan '

-'Yes, son, what was done was done
gods nowadays are not stones but flesh and bones
People who give you food water electricity and Sharonstone
They are people who surround you and you can't shun

No, sir I can Sorry you can but only when you run us '
-'No sir I won't be run so long as there is a sun
I believe we'll be what we're again
When man, you write 'man' as man with a capital antenn
When you stick the picture of victory I've drawn
When you stay a reverend teacher in Sajnan
When you have the truth of Os and the light of Ban'

    So should we put it as man or Man
    or is it just a typo
    or purposely done with something bold
