There’s the annoying chatter
Girls giggling at trashy rumors
Rapping bebop boys
Spitting rhymes
Knock Knock on classroom doors
Squeaky sneakers
On polished gym floors
Achoo goes a teacher
Sniffing too much chalk
And there goes the vending machine
Coins clinking
Gatorade thud
Bell blare
Through crowded halls
Crash Crash Crash
Doors slam shut on the clanging last bell
Last minute student’s dash
Mumbling profanities
On their way to class
