I sit in class all day
Wanting to go out and play
In the ocean with water so cool
'stead of German like a fool

Staring out at skies of blue
Stuck in class like super glue
Teacher prattling on and on
Can't stop the urge to yawn

Oh I would love to be at the beach
Instead of in here with the Teach
Sand and sun and relaxation
Not this mental exasperation!

Oh how I remember those school days! I'd never want to go back, that's for sure! The only thing I miss is summer vacation!! I'm so happy that I inspired this from you! This is cute! Speaking of school, I had two years of German and one year of Spanish and the only thing I remember is one Christmas poem in German....what a waste, huh? Try to use it from time to time so you don't forget it!

I'm with Denise on this one    I didn't care much for school either, especially not the H.S. years.

I do love the poem and it gave me some memories and a good chuckle!

Hey! This is cool! I love the humor in here.. Hate to tell you, but I loved school. I enjoy learning so it wasn't a hardship for me...can't think of one class that I didn't like...hmmm..nope not one!

Loved this Travis! I'm with PdV, I enjoyed learning but I do have a class that I hated. Senior year Economics, I wanted the coarse but the teacher was very dry and uninteresting. I can relate to the feeling of wanting to be in the sunshine when the weather turned nice though. I am so much an out doors kind of person.   Great writing!

dsnyder- heh, I am still taking german and I am already forgetting it. Maybe I should go to class more often, heh   Thanks for replying  

WhtDove- H.S. blows, its as simple as that, but I will miss it when I am gone, I have 3 really good teachers this year, but also 2 really bad ones. thanks for replying  

wayoutwalt- lol, thanks walt  

Poet deVine- Ok, I have nothing against learning, 3 out of 5 of my classes I enjoy going to every day, and to which this poem doesnt apply. Course, I also have 2 classes that each suck 55 minutes out of life every day  

Marilyn- How odd, that is one of my 2 despised classes, heh. The teacher isnt only boring, she isnt very bright. My english teacher goes off on regular rants on why she shouldnt even be teaching, its kinda funny

Oh.. I can feel your pain Mistikman  
I feel it every Tues. and Thurs. evening!  
College can be such a drag...
Nice poem~
