Happy Malala Day, Happy Sweet 16
On the occasion of the UN declaring July 12 as Malala Day, a reprise:
They say the school is again open;
It’s now off the main traveled path.
That’s good because I can’t be thinking
Of martyrs when trying to do all that math.
P B U H ~
Do little girl tears ever reach Heaven?
The Sun starts its fall toward evening;
Will it come tomorrow when I make eleven?
Better stars again rise over Kabul
Though life lessons do sting smartly.
I pray thanks for Fereshteh and Abdul.
Of course you’re invited to my party!
1 book, 1 student,
1 teacher, 1 pen:
It’s July 12 Malala Day:
And we’re all learning again!
