The Classroom


To appease me idle curiosity

I walked through me old school

And took a tour of the classrooms

With a motley assortment

Of chalk, and a carefully organized

Syllabus ready to be placed

Onto each student’s desk

I have a momentary forgetfulness

About time frames and bid a friendly

‘Here’ to me teachers who once took

Attendance in these rooms.

Today they wanted us to use metonymy. I took advantage of textbooks and chalk. I also snuck in apostrophe by addressing someone no longer present.
