She Walked to School Headless
She rolled her head down the hill
It picked up speed and lots of dirt and stuff
It began spitting out bugs and dust
Hey! Didn’t you need that for a math test?
Mrs. Peabody, a truly nosey neighbor asked her.
The head stuck out its tongue
And it laughed.
Some people blathered about
Trying to insist she put her head back on.
She walked to school headless
Loving the wind in her neck.
