Wondering what the he*l the title of this post means? hm.. Keep wondering, will tell you later! Hey, it is not my usual typo!

I commute to work place in Metro bus. Pretty frequent service and clean. Under a program called Poetry on Buses, the buses display placards of poems by the theme Self Portrait. Most of the self-portraits are by students, illustrating how they see their past, present and what they hope to become. I used to read those poems on placards during my 5 minutes daily commute.

Today while commuting back home, I came across an interesting placard. For a few minutes, I did not understand what it means. I had my digital camera with me, took a picture of it so that I can solve it later!

Would you like to try this?

If the image is not clear (I resized it), here is the text version of this.

Now you tell me, what is this poem all about? What is special? Are you as dump as myself?
