Today at school

I walk in the class and what do I find?

Thirty-odd teens each working their mind.

The teacher is teaching the golden rule,

A typical thing to see at school.

But something is here at first you might miss.

You must pay attention to catch all of this:

Some girls in the back that gossip and smile,

A couple in front who broke up for a while,

Three boys in a corner texting on phones,

As the teacher drones on in dull monotones,

The few high achievers who are paying attention,

And the one delinquent who almost lives in detention.
