"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.
