At The School Of Sternness - Poem by Chuck Audette

at the School of Sternness
there's a class on 'How to Frown'
Ms. Leech doesn't like me
and called me the class clown

when we did the lesson
on '20 Different Sneers'
I descended into trouble
for laughing down the stares

oh yes, I guess - I could wrinkle my brow
with the best of them
but my eyes would twinkle, somehow
while I sang the funeral hymn

Mr. Jenks says now my glower power
is no longer up to par
he's perplexed, 'cuz my aptitude tests
showed that I could go far

'You could have been director
of a top-notch funeral home
or a Principal scowling angrily
as through the halls you roam! '

But at my poor grades, I just have to laugh
for my heart my bearing mirrors
who cares if I got another F
for too many glaring errors?

after my course on Stern Disapproval
I was whistling in the hall
Mr. Ick demanded my instant removal
and the whole school was appalled

They dragged me to the Dean
who growled 'what's this I'm hearing of? ! '
so I finally just came clean
and told the Dean “I’m in love! ”

    Love has sent many a young aspirant on his premature and reluctant academic decline, a sad tale or yore, but at least he got to reveal his lot, before expulsion beyond school's door. (Report) Reply

    Chuck,
    They had to know that you would be,
    a walking, talking travesty - - -
    At that age, love to be expected,
    it mellowed you and all your views,
    before you even knew what happened ...
    you became a human!
    That was a good place to flunk out of !
