Ring!! Ring!! The bell rings!
Gossip in the air!
Even kids pulling each other’s hair!
Fists in each other’s faces!
Kissing, holding hands.
Kids fill the land!
Untied shoes—there’s a kid that fell!
Kids making plans to skip class!
Kids in band—woodwinds, brass.
Gosh now it’s cussing,
That’s the end.
