It is the first day of school
I don't know why they are so cruel
They bring us back, year after year
Sometimes they drag us by ear

We sit in our classes, good as can be
What does it get us? More words to see
The bell rings, on to the next class
I hope you studied, we might not pass

It's time for our lunch
We all sit in a bunch
They serve us this slop
It makes me want to plop
It looks like moldy cheese
Don't make me eat it, please!

On to 5th hour
This class is quite sour
They make us take note after note
We take enough notes to sink a boat
This good go on and on
The bell rings like a gong!

I've got two periods to go
Oh boy! It looks like it might snow
I'll go home and grab my sled
Then my mom will whack me, square on the head

Yes! School is out!
It makes me want to scream and shout!
Woo-hoo! Alright!
You comin' to my house tonight?

I got home and played with glee
Now I have homework, Oh gee
Off to bed
Lay down my head
Only to start over the next day

Default is a week ending on Saturday.


A Kinder Garden for the Mind

Listen here as I tell you, Son
About the time when school was fun:
The day was filled with fun and play
And that was what we did all day.

We made our friends, we got along.
No one ever was really wrong
And if we'd ever have a fight,
In the end we'd make it all right.

They'd hang our art upon the wall,
The good and bad, but best of all,
They'd hand out snacks to eat in class.
Then we'd go out, play on the grass.

They're the best days there are, Son.
Such days were filled with play and fun
'fore the days they make you smarten.
You'll have fun in Kindergarten.

classroom
by lytnin

sit straight
look sharp
tuck in your shirt
pull your tie up
get rid of that chewing gum
the same commands babbling on and on
the teacher speaks but the words dont come out
she stands
looking through those beady eyes
and small mean glasses.
look up
watch
clock
watch the clock
tick tock
nearly there.
sunlight taps on the window
trying to reach the musty room
no, were sealed off
goodbye world
only 15 more minutes.
come on
tick tock.
when will it end.

yeh its not supposed to rhyme or even make sense hardlys, i wanted to make it represent how in school you get so bored you kinda lose your trail of thought.. lol... i think adrecka won though :O

Its time I wrote up a poem here. Heh, keep in mind though that I'm not so great with the "fun" poems. Mine tend to be more serious. I really hate rhyming poems, and for a topic like this, its hard to be serious...Blagh :(
