The Kindergarten Concert - Poem by Robert Pottle

The kindergarten concert was an interesting show.
Peter walked onto the stage and yelled, "I have to go!"
Katie was embarrassed, but she had nowhere to hide.
She raised her dress to hide her face. Her mother almost died.
Keith removed his tie and said, "It's ugly, Dad. I hate it!"
David picked his nose on stage. What's worse is that he ate it.
They sang their song, and Wyatt burped. Then he did a dance.
Michael fell while spinning 'round. Peter wet his pants.
The music teacher at the end said, "There, I'm glad that's done."
The kindergarten bowed and said, "Let's sing another one!"

    I guess some times kids could be so brave and intelligent, and at other times they just couldn't help being kids. A good depiction of awful kindergarten concert, insightfully penned in lovely rhyme scheme with conviction. Thanks for sharing Robert. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
