Bad Student - Poem by diana rose tolentino

The heat is rising,
So is the boredom.
Head-breaking noises
Cutting through my brain.
My eyes are closing.
Sleepy head yawning.
Cannot understand anything
That the teacher is saying.
Laying back on my chair
Slowly nodding my head.
Pretending to listen.
But on the back of my mind
I'm waiting for the bell to ring.

    Laying back on my chair.......even i get confused sometimes with using a form of to lie vs. a form of to lay. i think Lying is the word to use here.

    i was not smart enough to be bored! the only time i recall being tired was the only night EVER in my life when i stayed up all night. it was in high school, preparing a writing assignment for my English class. my mom gave me a 'pill' to take to school to wake me up; it did, thank goodness.

    i would say at the back of my mind but i suppose there is nothing wrong with on the back. : )
