First Day At School

Rating: 3.9

A millionbillionwillion miles from home
Waiting for the bell to go. (To go where?)
Why are they all so big, other children?
So noisy? So much at home they
Must have been born in uniform
Lived all their lives in playgrounds
Spent the years inventing games
That don't let me in. Games
That are rough, that swallow you up.

And the railings.

2) hilarious poem, but never to insult these kids, just to show HOW it goes that First Day At School. I regard this poem full of intelligence to think and create a poem about that First School Day. A marvelous poem 5 Stars Full Most deserving as The Modern Poem Of The Day
