The ticking hand
It’s ten to three
Soon the bell
Then I’m free

Endless moments
Stress and strain
The careless clock
A guessing game

Teacher looks my way
Her staring eyes
No, please not me
The other guys

I like English
Science too
Arithmetic
I don’t do you

Add subtract
A count of sticks
The fraction world
A bag of tricks

Mulling measures
Longest mile
Call my name
Shortest smile

In Art one day
My drawing test
A loss of lines
An ‘F’ my best

I promise me
A change of heart
To study more
To do my part
