School Daze

 In the daze of school - of King Lear and Pi -
   The hype I would pass, the test I would fail!
 Not algebra, not prose did edify
   Till a stranger of herself did avail.
 Agent provocateurs at desks and chairs
   Shut open doors and tossed closed books aside:
'Twas a conspiracy one alone bears
   Yet co-conspirators had much to hide!
 For each lame alibi concealed misdeed,
   Each insurrection blotted my ledger:
 But we all did a quick life lesson heed -
   One of Self and Fate in equal measure.
 That an angel sat upon my shoulder
 Is wiser in me now that I'm older.


Dedicated to a teacher of mine at High School:
Wyn Johnson, without whom my school days 
Would have been an even bigger disaster!

May 1992

    great poem really enjoyed it. id have to say tho school days for me are horrible... i have written a poem about one of the girls who had been brutally bashed called 16 year old bully. i find that school is a lying hell full of all sorts of people and teachers. its the students that make the school. but it depends on what students you have. anyway great story i hope to read more.
