Saved by the bell

At school eating lunch alone
Boring sad old lucie jone
People tried avoiding me the best that they could
Why? I wish they never would
So in my lunchbox I had nothing
Trying to loose weight
Cos big bad Bertha said I was in a right state
So I closed my lunchbox and went to the library
Nothing different it was ordinary
I was a total teachers pet
That also means I got quote a lot of threat
So there I was reading a book
Then Bertha came and gave me a look
She came up to me
Way to close for comfort
She boomed in my ear
Lunch money here
I had no lunch money because of what she said
At this moment I would rather be dead
I have none I said with a stutter
I rummaged around in my clutter
She said well you better find some before my fists do the talking
Then the bell went they both went walking

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
