You remember. I know you do! The bestie running up to you while you're at your locker and with a mixture of glee and horror, she says. "We've got a sub today!" (Visions of mayhem and slaughter ensue.) Well....you've got a sub today. My name is Fireblossom and I'll be substituting for Anmol. No I don't know why. Yes, he will be back.
This one's nice.
My ride is in the teacher's lot. With an armed guard, so don't get any ideas.
Okay then. You in the third seat, what is your name? Kerry? Well Kerry, I'd like you to hand me that note, please. Kerry, I saw Marian pass it to you. Uh, I wouldn't swallow it if I were you. You could--well, too late. Let me know if you need to go see the nurse. Now, you there in the back, your name please? Bjorn? Bjorn, please put away that physics book. This is poetry class. Okay, you by the window, that's enough about the man from Nantucket.
You will have 10 mins to complete this assignment. Oh all right, take as long as you need.
Sliding low in your seat won't get you out of this.
All right. Over many years, I-- that will be enough eye rolling and fake snoring, thank you very much. Now then. As I was saying, over many years I have used a host of images to go with my poems and OW! My eye! No more spitballs! My goodness you are a band of hellions if I ever saw one.
Oh how nice! A little birdy at our window!
Has someone been fooling with my coffee? Very funny.
You can write to the song, too, if you want.
I think I had better just get to your assignment. Excuse me, Toni...it's Toni, right?...excuse me, but I am not a "witless old biddy." Please go to the principal's office. NOW. *sigh* All right. Your assignment is to choose one of the images provided--taken from my Word Garden blog--and write your own poem about whatever the image says to you. No, Izy, it does NOT say, "split and go have a smoke." My word. Just write. PLEASE. Then link. Then visit. Then someone PLEASE put out the fire in the waste basket. Thank you, Brendan. Lucky you had water handy. ;-)
For you sensitives, in case you come out from the coat closet!
PS--Thank you for being such a fine group. You are, one and all, the best.
I'm not angling to be teacher's pet, honest Shay, but I'm looking forward to spending some time in our wild garden today.
An over the top Fireblossom Friday......just the way i like it. How will i go on without Fireblossom Friday?
I am that ONE annoying student who never does what she is told...
Totally broke me up saying lucky Brendan had water handy. Watch out we don't end up half-drowned!
OK teach, you know I'm always handing in my assignments at the very last minute, and no I haven't started it yet, but I'll get there....
Whilr I was in the pricipals office I totally didn't get the image part. So I wll need to write anither poem. Glad I disb't post this. Dag nab it.
I love the subtle reference to gravity in the "thud" when my physics book hit the ground... But I can picture this...
OMG- Laughing with glee here! Thanks for such an imaginative prompt. Mypencil is dying to hit the paper, but alas, doggie must be walked first! Gives me time to ponder...
This was hilarious! I'm looking forward to posting later.
Can’t wait to post on this one. You are hilarious. I love that you included some familiar names.
I couldn't decide on just one image so I covered all of them. (over zealous student). You don't know how much I needed the distraction today. Thanks so much Shay!
