Back to School
A/N- When I first wrote this, I thought about not adding the italicised words, which tells which subject you're reading about. But then I figured it would confuse some people, so I decided against it.
Bricks are falling on my head
Hit me, crush me, 'till I'm dead
Feel my brains come oozing out
Flop around like a dead trout
Stars are dancing in my eyes
As I read the "Where?"s and "Why?"s
This gigantic book I do take heed
For it holds every date I need
I know that this is cool to some
But I don't care 'bout "six kingdoms"
My comfy bed I really miss
What is this "photosynthesis"?
I listen to my teacher's rants
I'm truly bored out of my pants
I think I'm in a sort of rut
Oh-what? Who me? Como se what?
Here I am, I'm dressing out
My shorts are torn; I'm filled with doubt
We have to run the whole school twice
Or God will kill me (if he's nice)
Now I study literary
Outside it's dark; the classroom's dreary
My teacher still drones on and on
Inside I lull and dream and yawn
School is back in session now
And summer slipped away-but how?
Now I have to do some work
Inside my head, I go berserk
But the thing that keeps me going is
That I am really smart; gee whiz!
And you know what makes schoolkind offun?
Only four years till I'm done!
