No...know....Why Always After Me?

By: Tania Bhattacharyya

``No more talking.......’’

``No..leave the smartphone.....’’

``Oh No! What have you done!’’

``Oh No! Terrible handwriting!’’

``No, don’t go there...’’

``No, don’t touch that.....’’


``No’’ and `` know ‘’always ringing in my ears-

But whenever I ask why my two besties- ``No’’ and ``Know’’ are spelled differently but sound the same,

``I don’t know’’ most of you adults confess, or at the most say ``Homophone.’’


 I see many of you adults do what you are not supposed to,

And not know, or not even try to know what you are supposed to know-

Then.... ..

Why always after me?
