Chapter XV1

Then
shall I cower in the corner by the cupboard
where you keep the ruler?

Oh
teacher tell me,
teach me, well
she
might have done
if the Sun had not come
out to play.

Monday is the new Saturday
it says so in the book
and I know this as a simple fact
because I stole a look.

Germs of ideas and
half term appears
more play time.
