A conductor is a person who collects fares and sells tickets on a bus.
The Little Conductor
He works with all the sharpness of his art,
This little boy, shouting in skilled, shrill voice,
“Ratnapark! Ratnapark! We’ll now depart
In five minutes.” If you get on, your choice
Will be to shift and stir, find space with care.
The boy beats on the door with tiny hands,
And screams, “Ratnapark!” with an earnest air—
The jolts, the jars, he easily withstands.
The driver flouts the rules; the little thing
Complies. People get on and get off where
They like. Inside some squeeze, some stick, some cling
Each to each. Don’t step on my toes—beware!
Through passion infinite, he does his job.
Pay the bill. Say thank you. Don’t be a snob!
