A flash of memory in fills-
There the pupils
Of my old school
Quite bored and cool-

It was the day's last period
Pupils were tired
Just third class kids
With shut eye lids-

One naughty boy of higher class
Slipped out from class
Like a bad thief
Did the mischief

Rang the bell before closing time
Stirred school in rhyme
Dispersed early
Hurry-scurry
