எந்த இலக்கை நோக்கி?

புனிதமாய் தொடங்கிய பயணம்
கள்வரால் கவரமுடியா கல்வி
பள்ளி என்னும் கடைகளில்
சொப்பனமாய் விற்பனைக்கு
பகல் கொள்ளையர்களால் சிலருக்கு எட்டாக் கனியானது
சுகமான கல்வி சுமையானது
இளம்பருவம் போட்டியினால் புதைந்துபோனது
ஆடும் தெய்வம் வகுப்பறையில் சிலையானது
பாடும் தெய்வம் மனப்பாடத்தில்  மூழ்கிப் போனது
