School kids running in elementary school hallway, back view

Watching the time, hearing the bell
The kids all shuffle, through their day of hell.
Lockers are slammed, chatter is loud,
Hurry lets go, get out of the crowd.

My mind stays calm, I arrive n’ take a seat.
The teacher reminds us never to cheat.
Waiting for her, to tell us just when
To get out our books and turn to page ten.

I wish the questions, were just a bit fewer.
I grab my paper and use the ruler.
Pencil in hand, the lines are now made.
Numbers will fill on the line of the grade.

Quickly I finish, set the pencil down.
Now we are discussing, the common noun.
The clock slowly moves, its hands around
The bell finally rings, I am now home bound!
