Late for Class
I realized it was half past four
When I, quite late, ran out the door.
My history class I so abhor,
But I missed
two sessions the week before.
I failed a test on ancient lore
And forgot the date of the Second World War.
my brain was really sore.)
Up the marble stairs I tore,
And slid across a just-mopped floor:
I banged my knee and
To wake -again- at half past four!
These nightmares I can stand no more...
