Double standards



Today we will read an interesting poem. Here, a child is complaining about double standards of grown up. Tell me what is the meaning of double standard? It means two different rules for the same thing or rules changing as the person changes. The child is also telling how grown up people show there double standards for children and grown-up people for same work and try to show their ‘partiality’. When I wake up late,I’m getting very lazy When you wake up late It’s the alarm that’s crazy.In this stanza the child tells us that when sometimes he wakes-up late, his parent’s or grown-ups in the family call him lazy. But when the elders get up late, they blame the ‘Alarm’. So even if they wake up late it is not their fault.
