I was a homeroom teacher to a pupil named Aleksandar,
who has been very hard to include in regular classes and even harder to
exclude.He was a child from a street.
He was coming when he wanted and leaving when he wanted too. But Drama
section has awakened Aca’s curiosity . He was coming to rehearsals, once
he ripped off a girl’s shirt sleave, I needed to outsmart a child that
was begging for attention. So we made a deal. I will write him a poem
and he will change his behavior. After two years I saw him on the television reciting that poem, at that
time I was not working at the school.
And the song:
On St. Sava
When school show is prepared,
They decided to put an end,
And announce my name
First grader Aca, that's me.
All Zajecar knows me.
The young and the old knows me.
Sometimes I’m great,
Sometimes they blame me.
A king and a beggar, That’s all me.
People of good will,
people of the whole world,
should not be afraid
to accept the love of a child
