DEAL (Drop Everything And Listen)

DEAL (Drop Everything And Listen)

A Poem by Andy Ruffett
"

Anyone remember DEAR in school? Well, this is DEAL. A program I created during DEAR.

"

Pages turning

People whispering

Chatter from outside

Breaths held as some sleep

In the afternoon light

The sun is shining, yet, we are stuck in a classroom

The bright rays open themselves to the clean glass windows

With the curtains drawn aside

The traffic outside is heard but at a mere monotone

Suddenly someone laughs

To find all this quite amusing raises my curiosity

Though, he is laughing at a piece of paper

Rather than the scenery

Suddenly all is quiet except the turning of a page

This is D.E.A.R.

Drop Everything And Read

To go against the code is such a crime

Though, I’m reading and writing at the same time
