K-12 Love: Volume I: Kindergarten Love - Poem by Byron Cornell Ford II

Walked into the classroom confidence blaring
I thought I looked so fly the way the other kids was staring
Mama had me dress'd fresh as that soap off TV
I was 5 minutes late so she had to see me
I brought her an apple, even had a worm in it
she told me to sit in a chair, I remember i squirmed in it
Spelled my name with crooked letters, thats something you gotta love
if anyone tried to ask a question, they were guranteed a push or shove
Day after day she answered every one of my questions
and if she asked something, You know I'd be the one guessing
if eva she was stressing, the nearest grown up I would threaten
Like 'why you make her mad, Dont make me teach you a lesson! '
That made her smile, and for a while I felt special
I asked her could I be yours? she said 'would you act right if I letchu'
I told my mama she said she prolly love my big head
I got my ass whooped when I asked mama which head
She was so fine, I knew it'd be easy for me to finish the year
Could this be part One, or should I finish it here?
