Summer School

From September to June, you didn't act too cool. That's why they forced you to attend summer school. With grades of D and F, there's no way you were proud. At the graduation ceremony, you were not allowed. No, they would not let you wear a cap and gown. Your classmates voted you the school's biggest clown. You were lucky the school board didn't chase you out of town. Just think, you could have been lying on the beach at the shore. What else could you be doing? I can think of lots more! So hit those books while you are in summer class. That's the price you have to pay for being a horse's ass! Inspired by another member's poem.

    way to be inspired. I really enjoyed this one, Robert. About my melancholy memory. That would be WA STATE. I never have seen DC. Does it rain alot there too?

    Enjoyed this informative poem... I know I'm the one that gets hopelessly distracted when it comes to studying! I don't know what it's like to be in summer school for I've never been in a real school (just homeschooling). But your words take me there and that's what I look for when I'm reading. Hilarious last line!
