poetry is a diary written out loud


stuffy room
crowded rows
number 2 pencils
questions nobody knows
no drinking water
or looking around
have to face forward
feet on the ground
to many questions
to answer with a bubble
cant ask for help
that would cause trouble
no making noise
it breaks the concentration
keep turning the page
answer without hesitation
a big waste of time
to see what we know
hours of thinking
time goes by SLOW
the pages say stop
so we dont skip ahead
then we just sit
and releive the sress from our head
then comes the bell
and we rush to the door
we all seem to forget
when we come back there is MORE
