School's Out (Goodby Old Friends) - Poem by David Whalen

Goodbye Socrates
So long Pericles

Ta-ta Sappho
Ciao Apollo

And you too Plato
Hate to see you go

Sayonara Sophocles
(and god knows those boney knees)

Adios Aristotle
Try to stay off the bottle

Quetzacoatl you knew how to par-tay
One sacrifice every 15 mins.24 hours a day

Farewell Pharaoh
Back in time you go

Bye-bye Homer, really good Odyssey
Cortez, you were as cruel as you could be

All of you… back into the books
Don’t be giving me those dirty looks

We had our time together
And now I’d really rather

Spend awhile, in the here and now
And write some poetry (if I can remember how)
