School's Out.

                                         School's Out.

"Hooray,Hooray",the children say,as they all run out the gate,
All of them racing,not looking bak,not wanting to be late.
School's out,you see,and their so glad,they've waited for this time,
It's been so long,time's driffted by,and now the bell's do chime.
Scurrying,and rushing,grabbing books,bags,and pens,
Almost like a chicken farm,wild geese,and flocks of hens.
Their all so very happy,that this day has finally come,
It seem's they've waited for so long,at least I'm sure,for some.
Laughing,scurrying,yelling,running to and fro,
Typical of children,that would be right,always on the go.
Sighs,from parents,releif and despair
But from the children,not even a care.
Hollidays now,sleep in's,and stay's out,
Plenty of time,there is now,to get out and about.
Plans for week-ends,for days,through the week,
As heads get together,for suggestions,they seek.
"Oh,God",say the parents,"God,please give us strenght",
As plans,come together,at any great lenght.
"Chill",say's the parents,be strong and be brave,
Hopefully,the children,will stay good,and behave.
Such are the feelings,all thoughts,that run wild,
School's out,for the children,Oh,God,please bless the child.
