Staying Awake In Class - Poem by Rich Reitz

Staying awake in class
Is sometimes hard to do.
From eight o'clock in the morning
'Til quarter after two.

Sometimes the lessons ae boring,
Sometimes the lessons are cool.
But it's not good to get caught snoring
While sitting at your desk in school.

Music, Art and Gym are my favorite
Classes of the day,
While science, math and English
Make my mind fade away.

Staying awake in class
Is sometimes hard to do.
I need a cup of coffee.
Do you want one, too?

Learning is beneficial
If it's taught in an exciting way.
Our minds are so full of info
By the end of the day.

So staying awake in class
Maybe sometimes hard to do,
But learning all you can
Is essential to me and you.
