Being Pal

Pal’s teachers would complain 
about his unkempt hair. 
They combed his hair made him
look presentable,

He will make his friends believe
that he comes from a poor family,
His father  a daily wage earner
and his mother  uneducated.

 He came to school in a 
chauffer driven car, 
when mom entered his class
to review his performance, 

the classmates could not 
believe to see a dignified,  
well informed and elegant lady
Pal  held his head down.

He did not lift his eyes when 
the teacher appraised mom 
of his  unsatisfactory  progress,
and his disclosures,

Pal continues being dubious,
speaking one, doing other
mixing lies and deceit liberally.
