My Dream- Coordinate Zero-Hundred

Once upon a time,
I was four more than nine.
Quite short of the community of nerds,
Not pro at the game of words.
By the teachers I was swirled,
To write an essay on ‘My Dream World'.
Didn't wanted to waste my day,
As it was the time for us to play.

So on the paper's upper half,
I drew a graph.
Below was the explanation
Of my dream world's notion.
The world that lays on the coordinate
On graph where the point reads zero-hundred
With ‘percentage defense expense'
located on the axis-x.
And space to ‘percentage growth spending'
Axis-y is lending.

Disqualified on lack of word's ground
On the bulletin board there was a place my essay found.
