Poems. 
Modus Operandi
by Jayati Gupta

Early morning routine shock.
Scream the alarm, wake up hop
Out of bed, brush your teeth,
quick shower, fresh indeed.
Pack school bags, have breakfast
Rice, Cornflakes, bread butter jam, eggs.
Tuck in-lunchbox, wear white socks
school uniforms black shoes well polished.
Prepared.
Mom and Dad give a drop, drive off to work.
We wait at school gate for our schoolmates.
Some come in school bus
alighting without fuss,
join us.
Brisk converse, hurried focus,
a swift prepare for class test on particular days.
Otherwise, games.
Noise hilarious. We run, talk endless.
Stories, fictions, tales based on pure imaginations,
read out to us by parents at home the previous night.
Soon the bell rings. Silence. Discipline.
We Que. Pray.
Another day in school begins.
