For whom no bell tolls

“What would you do if you don’t study?
Do you wish to become a rickshaw puller?
You would fail your exams and be thrown out of the school
Then you can join the school for shepherds and herd goats.”
We got scared, we studied some.
Now someone else pulls the rickshaw;
Someone else goes to the school for shepherds.
