Teacher's know best

Think think!!!!
Think aloud she say's
while walking with a ruler
tapping each of us on the head

apples on our desk
Kids playing dead

Laying our faces on our desk
passing notes with my friend ted

But along in the window
came a beautiful hummingbird
a strange event nonetheless
an event which had never occurred

as my imagination wandered
teacher to me , became dead
silence feeled the room
I was at peace in my head

Then a tap on my shoulder
and an awkward stare from ted
My teacher stood over me
asking what in class was said

Not trying to lie or deny it 
I simply said OK!!!
But to be honest I cant really think right now
At my head you've been tapping all day,
See I seemed to have suffered some memory loss
and for this I have you to blame!!!!

All these questions, you put in my face
are running to fast ,to fast to take
because my head, is in so much pain
I think I will go to the office today

My teacher said "NO!!! with that walk NO way"!!!
you just put your head down, and take an A for today

My teacher looked nervous 
as she walked away
thinking to herself worried
"I might get fired today"

But in my little head 
it was clear as day
I got her off my back 
That's how I got all A's
: )

    Cody, Sounds like your "teacher" got what she deserved. As did you. This one deserves an A. Thanks for your kind comments on my stuff. Always, Will

    So many times, my mind would drift from the classroom to fantasize (and even write poetry) while sitting at my desk. Teachers who walked with tapping sticks never received much respect. And I LOVE the humorous twist at the end. (So that's how folks get straight As...OK, wish I could go back and do it over keeping this in mind.) Delightful read! Love, Carolyn
