May 23rd…“WHEN IN HIGH SCHOOL, DID YOU HAVE HOMEWORK TO DO IN THE EVENINGS?”
POEM – “HomeTorture” by N. Elliott Noorlun
Homework, you say?, In High School day?
More like HomeTORTURE, For me it did play.
For school and I, Never saw eye to eye,
When an armload of books, Was sent home with this guy.
Dyslexic, cross-eyed, It was all such a “pill”,
Too hard to swallow, With no kind of will.
Epidemics of worry, And scratching my head,
Knowing tomorrow, I’d wish I were dead.
When teacher would call, For homework to grade,
I’d realize that, Another egg I’d laid.
Oh sure, there were some things, In which I’d excel,
Like Shop, or Ag, Where more talents fell.
I LOVED Concert Choir, Mr. Peru was the best,
And I always was happy, To put voice to test!
For the young ones that follow, Please heed my cry,
Study hard, be successful, And see your life fly!!!
