Starting the School Day

 

They arrived.

En masse.

One period:

Registration.

 

Arguing

Bickering

Cattiness

Defense

 

One me.

30 of them.

One outcome set:

The register.

 

Energy wasted

Frustrated

Giving up

Harrassed

 

They leave.

I sit.

Entire day ahead:

I’ve registered.

 

I must persevere

Just continue

Keep going

Love, faith, hope… I pray

 

One child.

One class.

Improve their chance:

For a higher register.

 

Minding

New

Obfuscate

P’s and Q’s.
