People Progress

I was promoted to the next standard
To occupy that class vacated by students
And to leave the class for upcoming ones,
Like one who moves in a queue to reach.

This small poem tells us about how the hierarchy works- in schools and elsewhere, a space vacated by one is occupied by the other. It may be first come first served or it may be governed by seniority or purely by merit. You have an impressive style, Chettiar Sir. Thanks.
