Miss Singh Is Missing

Miss Singh Is Missing

A Poem by Zoe

Being trapped in a classroom,
With an excessively talky lot.
Screaming and jumping like baboons,
Saying-"This is what we were taught"
The drums beat and the trumpets blow,
In unison they sing and dance.
Oh where did Miss Singh go?
To Japan? Or to France?
Duster and chalks are thrown around,
Shrill voices rupturing the veins.
The room turns into a playground,
They chase each other in chains.
My head aches- they're hooting and hissing,
School seems no less than a zoo.
'Cause Miss Singh is missing,
Can you tell me what to do?

Author's Note

Zoe
The rhyming and musicality aren't spot on, I know. Just a fun poem. Some of you might find it relatable, cause I definitely do. My teacher's name also happens to be Miss Singh! Lol

Oh god! You made me feel the tension of a missing teacher. The moment I saw your read request I was sure I am going to read something great and this is it, thanks for the surprise. I loved the rhyme, I created a tone in my head and read this and it went great with tune. Keep surprising me. Truly, a very true reflection of a classroom of primary school children. Every kindergarten teacher can relate as well.
P.S I forgot to mention I loved the pun of Miss Singh and missing.

Then she should learn to block out all that noise out and isolate herself in herself

She knows.
Just shows: In my college (older students) Teacher missing > All keep quiet: go to the library > the adventures go off into town
Don't make it obvious 'teachers missing" or they will send in someone else

Thanks once again. I appreciate it!
The chaos of a classroom without a teacher around can be quite disturbing to those students that are more mature than most. Your detail makes this a great poem to read. There's a bit of humor and misery wrapped up to form the mood of the poem.

I enjoyed.

Very enjoyable, whimsical poem. You say in the author's note that the rhyming and musicality aren't spot on, but I enjoy them. And yes, very relatable. School was always a zoo, and it was worse when the teachers were absent. Very fun to read.
