-When I was four, I went to school,
They called it kindergarten,
Upon my rug, I'd take a nap,
I'd drink milk from a carton.

See Dick? See Jane?
I see that damn Spot run.
Twelve times four is forty-eight,
My learning had begun.

On classroom door there was a knock,
The president has died.
No school was held, the children played,
Why had the teachers cried?

In junior high, I learned to smoke,
New math was all the rage.
I pondered on what Orwell meant,
Upon the printed page.

Mathematical equations, trigonometry,
Getting drunk and skipping school;
Trying to impress the girls,
Yet often played the fool.

Across the stage, what's left behind?
Where's Pomp and Circumstance?
I'd return to naptime rug,
If only had the chance.

Tim, I think we all would love to get the chance every once in a while, seems as we get older hectic life styles get in the way. Somehow though I think having this here place at Passions to sit and read these poems, almost comes close to resting on that rug. Great job with this one, I liked the reminising of school days.

6th grade...our curriculum here in Kansas is a little stunted... If you read the national news... we have decided to revisit the Scopes Monkey trial.

I like this one. Wish I could say it reminded me of my school years, but you didn't mention dinosaurs or the excitement of the discovery of the wheel or our prom night "Fantasy in Fur".......*sigh*....
