The teacher opened the book
We too

we went down the poem
line by line 
like we used to climb down steps
at the village pond

a question pelted at the placid
stirred the hell out

the house of cards
the teacher got busy building
when Minnu pulled one out
with her question

there stood
the teacher with an open mouth
and the poem lay
like a pricked balloon !!
