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
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!
