MR. WILLIAMS FACT OR FICTION Werewolves, we talked about them a lot when We were young, Thrill seekers, especially when boarders at school, Is when it begun! We would wait till the nuns were fast asleep And snoring, Before, we crept out the front door with a torch, The rain was pouring! There were 6 of us, the same ones that began The peanut butter strike, We were all adventurous, all from Zambia, Close friends and very alike! It was pitch dark when we reached where The school classrooms were, Not a sound did we make, sneakers we wore So we would nobody stir. Suddenly a classroom door opened and a strange High pitched howl we heard, Thought a dog had accidentally been locked up, The atmosphere was very dark and blurred. We shone our torch and saw a handsome young man, Slowly shape-shift and become A beautiful silver blue wolf, we could sense he did Not want to run! Was this a dream, a nightmare or was what we saw For real, why were we not scared? He walked towards us and dropped a paper at our feet, His nostrils were flared. His eyes became liquid when he looked each one of us In the eye, our hearts stirred, We recognized something about this wolf, familiar yet Authoritative, but he obviously cared! He ran off and disappeared out of sight, we waited awhile But he didn’t return, We picked up the paper and shone Our torch down at it, we nearly Collapsed, we didn’t want this incredible Magic moment to disappear, Our Maths results stared up at us, this wolf was our Math's teacher, that’s why we felt no fear, It seems it was destined for him to let us know that He, Mr Williams, who we would see tomorrow, In class, was a human shape shifting soul, who felt he Needed to share his secret, he Wanted to be our friend, This was the message he was desperate to send! We saw him in class the next day, But now saw him, in an awesome kind of way! Congratulations he said, To the six who passed their math's exam so well, We all imagine we see things Mr Williams said, Completely out of the blue, As long as we never tell!

Thank-you Lindsay - I think I enjoy the aspect of losing myself when writing fiction. Sometime back before I joined Poetry Soup someone named me the story teller, and my son when he was young always said to me at night - mom please tell me one of your make-believe stories! Thanks Lindsay, hugs, Jennifer.

I think so too Connie, and it is getting harder and harder to sift out fact from fiction, and the media, make fantasy seem so alluring - thanks for a lovely comment Connie, hope you are keeping well. Poetry hugs, Jennifer.

And I opened this one up thinking that it would be about Robin Williams. what a surprise---a very pleasant one at that. Enjoyed this much more than another poem about the mercurial comic. Poetry hugs, Gershon

Hi Gershon, - maybe Robyn Williams is one of the Maths teachers nephews or some kind of relative - now that would be an alarming surprise! Glad you you enjoyed. Poetry hugs, Jennifer.
