diamond- School and all it's Wonders

A Poem by Jack Diamond
"

A funny poem about some things I learned and observed in school on a random day

"

 

school is not a fun place
 
but I would call it far from waste
 
a day at school is so mundane
 
the frustration is enough to make me insane
 
I learn of science's mystery
 
and then I go to history
 
after which I learn to weld
 
then like Pavlov's dog
 
salivate to the lunch bell
 
Throughout the day I learn of many things
 
of shoes, and ships, and sailing wax
 
of cabbages and kings
 
I learned today of a man named Archie
 
running naked through the town
 
running to the king’s house
 
to tell him of his crown
 
In English class I’ve always done well
 
Yet I wonder why I still can’t spell
 
Today I also learned of Rome
 
A terrible place that’s not like home
 
To them entertainment is a vile thing
 
Throwing peasants to lions, contained in a ring
 
In Scotland there were blue men
 
running around a battlefield
 
Like giant smurfs with bow and arrows
 
And broadswords did they wield
 
I also learned of Deadalus
 
And his rather stupid son
 
Who with wings of feathers stayed with wax
 
flew too close to the sun
 
like cattle to a troth
 
we go from bell to bell
 
some people say this place rocks
 
to others it is hell
 
they try to steer us morally
 
although it’s really boring
 
they tell us all to stay off of drugs
 
and counter them with love and hugs
 
the commons is like a lion’s den
 
each table has an alfa male
 
and his loyal mother hen
 
then the last school bell rings
 
and then everyone yells
 
some are just going home
 
while others go to hell
 
at the end of the day
 
teachers all go away
 
then it all starts again
 
all the same the next day

Not really the greatest poem of mine, but perhaps worth reading

Knowledge is a wonderful thing - even if we can't do anything with it :) On the first day of the year my English teacher told us about the Thugi in India who went around strangling people for their goddess, as they beleived they were flushing out all the demons of the world - hence the word thug. Wonderful! Not the best technical poem in the world, but hey, we all have our off days. Senses of Humour are the best things in the world. Sadly I can't make up jokes, but LOVE laughing at the jokes other people make up. Your poem made me smile, and that's all that counts really. Contributing to the happiness of the world. :)
