The schooling

The names fall during roll call and in no particular order,
present, present, present, absent, whoa hold on to your hair
what went wrong there,
where’s Tony?
anyone seen Tony Green,?

I made a cardboard cut out for roll call so I could butt out and got an A star for imagination also three months of after school detention.

you can’t win them all.

Tony’s still absent from roll call.
