After School Special
Some Light Verse On School
Limerick for Daughters First Day of School
So when I try to ask my daughter
what information classes taught her
and instead of something
I always get “nothing”
I have to fish out every answer.
Even if in her lunchbox that we send
a sweet treat for her sweet tooth to tend
there is no bribery
for this school mystery
all I will ever get is a “friends.”
She always give me her cutest smiles
the kind of smile that goes miles and miles
“I play with all my friends.”
The only thing she lends
from her very secretive school files.
At least I know that she is happy
by her every action I can see
she is in love with school
her teachers always cool
when she needs to she will share with me.
Pine cones release seed
will float upon each light breeze
knowledge for a greater life
As new seeds soon float
yet another destiny
I will wave goodbye
as new forest grows
an evergreen family
each tree diverse branch
The ground is learning
with the sun and with the moon
not still but moving
First Grade Limerick for Boys
The first one on these seats to be seen
by the driver who hollers so mean
what we think is funny
she will think is crummy
there our boogers are seen brilliant green.
Before class us boys on the playground
in a circle have gathered around
to impress all the girls
with their straight hair and curls
we all take turns making farting sound.
We all hurry to class at the bell
to hear what the teacher has to tell
we learn science and math
to follow the right path
and determine who made that bad smell.
Soon it will be time for our recess
releasing our energy in excess
boys and girls will both run
enjoying heat of sun
from our education we digress.
Soon we will return back from our breaks
to sit in our chairs for learning sakes
it is hard to sit still
before the schools last bell
we laugh at the belch Warren’s mouth makes.
On way back home driver keeps an eye
but we are all too tired too try
we just want to go home
to just sit there and zone
as we watch cartoon Superman fly.
Limerick for Ol’ High School Friends
My friend Chad has a daughter I’ve heard
I am happy I’ve heard that’s occurred
back in the days of school
we were never quite cool
not so much jocks but probably nerds.
So most of us are married with kids
some have jobs, some have life on the skids
but all of us will know
that we saw ourselves grow
in small town High School off the grids.
