"School's Out for the Summer"
by: Sean Powers
June 3, 2001
The long, industrious school year is about over.
Some of the students are biting the quivery flesh
From their lips, counting the seconds till
School is out for the summer.
Tick, tock, tick, tock, every eye is glued to the clock.
Clang, bang, the loud, provoking bell has rung.
Summer has just begun.
The students are running outside with joy,
For the long awaited summer has come to them like a new toy.
The teachers are ready to celebrate
Their freedom from the blood sucking monsters
They just happen to call "students".
The kids throw their hardbound textbooks
On the hot, dusty ground.
All they care about now is having fun,
For they all know that the long school year is done.
