Gym Class

Written by: Susan Palli

Mr. Edgy was a nervous young  teacher,
who taught  his class like a preacher.
The pupils’ delight, 
was to put up a fight,
so they could be thrown from  the bleacher.

Now one of the students named Buster
gathered all of the courage he could muster
to give him advice, 
and make him think twice,
about how he could teach without fluster.

They all were surprised the next day,
when Mr. Edgy allowed them to play.
He had taken great heed,
became friendly indeed,
and the students had no more dismay.
