Where Are You From

Some blank verse, a project in progress

 

Where Are You From?

 

I am from the old school.

Raise your hand before you speak.

Keep your feet beneath your desk.

Don’t chew gum, Don’t pull hair

Don’t put that gum anywhere.

Bring a pencil, number two,

Hold it in your right hand, just so.

Slant your letters to the right,

Bring your folks to “Parent’s night”,

Join the P.T.A.

Be Creative. Draw anything you want.

Don’t copy your neighbors, Do your own.

Use your imagination. We’ll put it on the board.

YOU, who drew that toilet! To the principal…right now.

My sisters (two lefties) were forced to write with right hands until they saw Syl writing backwards, lol.  I also tend to be from the old school.  Blessings, Penny http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/FromHeretoThere

Left handed people should never be taught to write.

Way to go, Chuck!

You are obviously taking the assignment seriously. I know you'll be a great addition to the class. I hope you'll share information about blogging with others in our group.

That creates a vivid image in my mind of grade school and the dreaded words:  "You will report to the Principle"  !      mark
