The Cheat Sheet

Composed Upon Westminster Bridge, a sonnet by William Wordsworth, is undoubtedly an English classic. But for an eighth grader, it can be a nightmare, especially if he/she belongs to a country where English is not the native language. So I wasn’t surprised to see this lying on the ground outside my office one day. This is a Cheat Sheet, or a pharra, as we native Urdu speakers like to call it, and it must have belonged to one of the students at the nearby school. Measuring a mere 3 inches by 4 (approximately), this contains the critical appreciation of the aforementioned sonnet and looks like a work of art; I just hope the student passed!

Needless to say, it brought back a lot of fond memories. Damn, I used to be daring (nothing implied)!
