Bored With School - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
I became extremely bored with school,
At an early age.
I felt I was watched and scrutinized,
I told my 5th grade teacher this.
AFTER given an assignment,
To write an essay...
Right there in the classroom.
I felt her hawkish eyes on me,
Like I was prey.
And she couldn't wait to see,
What I had written.
Why are you looking out the window.
I've given all of you students an assignment.'
~You've asked us to write an assignment...
With an 'a' and a 'd' surrounding an 'n'
I was done! ~
'You are a fresh mouth little boy.
Bring to me your work.'
~And there are no spelling errors.
I check it.~
Very 'adult' in expression.
But this is a 5th grade assignment.
And YOU are getting a 'C'.'
~A 'C'? ~
'Open your mouth again,
And it will become a 'D'.'
