Two halls diverged in my own high school
and viewing those who had traveled each
I laughed at those who tried to be cool
those who broke each and every rule
the respect of their peers they did beseech.
Than viewed the rest just as inane
lost to the benefits of social bliss
night after night they live in pain
loneliness but all in vain
so much of youth they do miss
And seeing both as too extreme
confused at which hall to take
knowing both not what they seem
I chose the glitter and the gleam
then dismissed it as so very fake
But I shall be saying this with a sigh
for knowing how way leads to way
to halls diverged in my school and I
chose the one more traveled by
and have regret it to this day

Great read...Enjoyed it much.

We have 4 halls in my high school,
Labeled freshman, sophmore, junior, and senior.
And with me being such a fool,
I travel the sophmore path.
Until next year, when I advance to junior.
And after that, senior, when I will rule!

LOL....as much as I enjoy Frost and this one in particular my favorite of his, I enjoyed your parody on it
