During my time at high school I never once broke any rule I was quiet and shy Didn’t flirt with a guy Even if I thought he was cool     I was never ever great at sport Even though it was subject taught I was so very short That on the netball court I couldn’t reach the hoop and scored naught! At college I met a cute guy Both of us were terribly shy We went out to a gig But he lit up a cig I hate smoking - I wanted to cry! Contest:- Let’s Hear it Sponsor:- Judy Konos 02~08~16
