Class Dismissed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Can anyone identify
What this is I have in my right hand?
'It is a pen, Mister Wisdom.'
And with that pen,
On a piece of paper.
I want each of you to write this:
'If I ever allowed Mister Wisdom,
To teach and I would listen.
Perhaps he will not consider me,
A complete idiot! '
Now take this to your parents...
And return this to me tomorrow!
With a photo of your parents attached!
The bell hasn't rung yet! '
You are going to hear much more than bells,
In this classroom!
I just want you all to pay attention to the silence!
That's the way I like it!
And that's the way it is going to be.
Unless a fool wants to object to my wishes?
Like I said...
And don't forget those photos,
Of your breeders!
Forgive me children.
I meant to say...
Unless an 'ignoramous'
Wants to object to my wishes!
All and 'any' class who forgets
That I am the one who dismisses...
Will receive many lessons in this room!
Tell your parents...
No 8 by 10's!
