My Classroom

My Classroom

A Poem by Sonakshi Arora
"

Welcome to my havoc-heaven!

"
"Good morning, students
Good morning to one and all."
Says the class teacher
As the first morning call.

And as the students open their eyes
They wish the teacher in sluggish voices
The entire classroom of 41 students
is filled with heavy, snoring noises

"Today we shall start with Maths."
Says the teacher with a scorn
While the tired and lethargic students
Can only whine, crib and mourn

Mrs. Jones caught one boy
sleeping with his hands on his head
and Mrs. Jones scolded a girl
Who joined two benches to make her bed!

Every morning the children are tired
And fight with their mothers for skipping school
They rather not mug up and cram
But instead stay illiterate fools

On the first bench sits a boy
Who never talks or screams
Whereas the last benches are filled with students
Lost in their own dreams!

In the middle row sit some girls
Who steal and smuggle tiffin-boxes
God knows why they come to school
When they are as cunning as those clever foxes!

And as soon as the bell goes off
The students wake up and smile with glee
As if they were never tired
Because now it was time for P.T!

Welcome to my lovely class
Where every day we have some fun
Sometimes we enjoy so much that
Even all the teachers run!

"God knows why they come to school
When they are as cunning as those clever foxes!"
Hahahaha this was crazy... just my point of view. same pinch!
"While the tired and lethargic students
Can only whine, crib and mourn" superb rhyming and choice of words.
"Sometimes we enjoy so much that
Even all the teachers run!" This used to happen almost all the times hahaha...
It was nostalgically creatively and sweetly funny.
Keep going . I look forward to read more of your works. All the best . :)

Thank you very much! 😃
It reminds me of my own classroom, where surely tiffin smuglers thrive. They cough so loud intentionally that the teachers run away... Its sooo realistic. Every thing you conveyed are so true to our own classrooms. Truely great rhythm. Feeling encouraged to write a classroom poem of my own.

Your poems are cute in a way and I love the honesty about them. NO fancy words or cliche, just honesty.
