DAYDREAMS SCHOOL AND BOOKS By Robert Hewett Sr.
DAYDREAMS, SCHOOL AND BOOKS
“Isn’t it a shame that we have to go to school?
And learn all those things that are not really cool.
Why should all my time be spent in books and tests?
When I would rather just dream right here and rest”.
“Yes Miss Teacher I did hear every word,
But you scared me and I forgot what I heard.
Just give me a moment to gather my senses
And I will answer the quiz without any misses”.
“You want my mother to come and talk to you?
She is very busy with my brother who’s two.
Maybe I could get my dad to come instead,
He hasn’t been here lately and he is well read”.
“Oh Miss Teacher I know that it’s plain to see
Asking my mother to come is hard for me.
Another chance is all I need to do better
No more dreaming and I will be a go-getter”.
“What’s that Miss Teacher, did you just call on me?
I was listening, but I was hoping to see
The mockingbird that is singing in that tree.
Oh, by the way, my mom will be here at three”.
