Poetry Pleasures

It’s poetry time!

4th Hour

(a poem for study hall)


The floor is slightly sticky,

A song stuck in your head,

The vending machines are tricky,

the change return is dead,


The muse’s song is over,

inspiration is for naught,

the honey and the clover,

are not found in what’s taught,


The page is white,

the mind obscene,

the sentence not quite right,

the gift of every study hall

is more work to do tonight.
