CURIOUS IT IS~by Balachandran Nair




A fat lady teacher was teaching about ‘curiosity’
She asked us one by one to tell an example
‘Crow keep peck on pack we throw outside’
‘Mosquito suck blood to determine our group’
‘Children – look at visitor’s gift pack’
‘Teenagers – scan opposite sex’s attires’
‘Fiancee – fiance’s bank balance’
‘Wife – husband’s mail box’
‘Husband – neighbor’s closed window’
‘Old-age home tenants – every approaching car’
‘Politicians – money in every Govt contracts’
Now it was my turn, she called, I straightened,
But I was not prepared, fixed gaze on her face,
“What?’ she inquired aloud, whole class looking,
“Black box’, I shouted back with a wheeze
Fumed, staring at me, grim grimace on face,
Pressed knuckles, she was gone, startled,
‘Of a crashed Airbus’, I completed silently!
