bribing the teacher


It was the end-of-year exam
to qualify for the prestigious
Top Class at school
and with his paper
spoiled brat Tommy
handed in a $100 note
to his teacher and winked with a whisper:
"A dollar for each point, Sir;
I know all about percentages"

The next day the teacher returned
the papers to the students
and marked bold on
spoiled brat Tommy's paper
was: 40%
And the teacher pointed to a $60 note attached
and he said with a wink and whisper:
"That's the change, Tommy -
a dollar a point, yeah"

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
