Each year, we all went back to school
reminded of the golden rule
by parents who expected much:
good manners, grades, and other such.
Some of us went off with a smile,
happy to go and stay awhile;
while some could only wear a frown,
as schoolwork dragged their spirits down.
But most were hoping for the best,
expecting they would pass each test,
and praying for a teacher who
would find good things for them to do.
Some worked real hard and thought a lot.
as teacher's pet, they earned their spot.
But others played around a bit...
made mischief, for the fun of it.
Still, all the kids were good at heart
and mostly glad for school to start!
(Even Mr. tough guy).
