School Head-Captain

Below are the majority views of students about to vote
for their next high school head-captain: 


Nelson:

He is tall and handsome,
plays for our basketball team,
knows the best bars in town,
hates maths, just like us.


Pitt:

He's shy,
hates proms and games,
he's a nerd,
he wears heavy glasses


Charlie:

He's a perv and a chain smoker,
heavy metal is his friend,
never talks much,
but rocks in raving!


Kelvin:

An "A" material, and spends more time
in the library than in bed.
He believes in extraterrestrials.
We think he should visit a shrink or something....


Hosea:

He's very smart and funny,
active in spoken word,
hates politicking,
certain for a scholarship,
very good with skateboards....

................................................................................

Hosea made the cut,
but forcefully. Majority
of students threatened 
that they would steal his
skateboards, if he didn't
stand for the coveted position
as the head-captain......
