Treasure Island

Joe Rosochacki

Oscar, Bert and Ernie

The Sesame Street characters should another gig,
Somewhere they can make big bucks big,
It has come to this writers conclusion that 30k,
For pre-school and Kindergarten is too much to pay.
I was floored
when I heard tuition being reported by Forbes
That people sign their children on waiting list
At birth or if they’re Jewish, the baby boy at his briss.
If I were Oscar, Bert, Ernie and Big Bird
I would go on strike,
Or the Count,
Can you count,
vahn, two, three times ten times thousand,
What’s the word?
Red, Green, Yellow
Donovan was mellow,
Betcha’ his parents never 13,000 quid for British Kindergarten,
Day cares should a lot cheaper than that,
It a pity, that parents who in the city,
Are forgetting the most important thing,
They are their child’s teacher,
The Sesame Street Song,
-they should, with their children, sing.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
