Richard R. Wright 2nd Grade Elementary School PhotoA Poem by E.Gleaves
Growing pains hurt more than anything
Hey remember that kid?
Yeah, Ain't he cute?
Yeah, look at his front teeth.
I’m not sure if I should hug him
Or kick a field goal.
He looks all smart in his turtle neck sweater.
I remember he was the top of our class.
Ok, if this guy is so smart what’s up with that retarded looking smile?
Ha! Who Knows? And those feet, Oh my god those feet!?
How many second graders do you know can fit an eight
Not many. But, you do know what big feet mean right?
Look at his small head
And his weird looking nose.
He reminds me of the Planters guy.
That giant peanut that walks around with a cane and a monocle?
Yeah I see what you mean.
What was his name anyway?
I can’t remember.
It was one of those prophets.
Eh, I don’t care to know anymore
Yeah, that kid was a loser anyways.
