Passed Note To The Teacher's Pet In The Third Grade Just Before The Christmas Party-Confliscated - Poem by Mary Angela Douglas

just because you've got fifteen petticoats
in double shades of the double rainbow
starched out to the moon and back

and wearing them all at the same time
makes you float about the room
at show and tell

completely defying gravity
and winning the All Schools Everywhere
Science Fair Project

doesn't mean you should get all the presents
at somebody else's birthday party.
