I Love School

I Love School

Tom Hardnut’s English Journal.
Written on Sunday, yesterday...

I love school like a kick in the shins
I love school like a zit on my skin

I love school like a teammate who quits
I love school like a teacher who spits

I love school like a punch in the nose
I love school like a kitten in bows

Notice on slimed school gates.
Written on Monday, this morning...

This school is closed for good!
because at some unspecified time over the weekend,
a passing U.F.O
beamed it up apparently!
P.S. Go home and do what you want......
Forever!

Tom Hardnut’s English Journal.
Written on Monday, tonight...
(Note from editor: The journal is hard to read -
the ink is smudged
like a baby has blubbed all over it).

I love school – never meant what I said
I love school like a wallow in bed

I love school like a goal in the net
I love school like when I win a bet

I love school, you might say I am weird
But how would you feel, if yours disappeared?
