Although many of my poems have a serious and thoughtful nature to them, I thought the first one I shared should be a little on the lighter side.  Thank you to Robin who helped me to realize that I have a silly side to my writing.  If it wasn’t for you giving me all of those crazy phrases, I never would have known….  :o)


Principal Ford


In a grade school run by Principal Ford

You could hear him shout, “Oh, help me Lord!”

“Here come those monsters running down the hall;

I know they’ll trip me and then I’ll fall.”

“Day in, day out, it’s the same old thing,

The lunchroom’s a mess from the food that they fling.

In the library books are scattered everywhere!…

And the nurse has a boy that dumped glue in his hair.”

“The teachers that work here are all turning gray-

Two of them were locked up and taken away.

The janitor found a big snake in his room…

I saw him chase it down the hallway with a broom!”

"Little Mikey took a pencil and poked out Ben’s eye,

And he laughed hysterically while he watched Ben cry!

I’M DONE, I’VE HAD IT, ENOUGH OF THIS PLACE!

IT’S NOTHING BUT ONE GIGANTIC RAT RACE !!“

"Someone else take this job, for I am too old!

I’ve made a decision I think is quite bold:

This is the last day these kids will torture me !

I’m going to Jamaica where I’m wild and free!”
