Middle School Confessions

I work with the most interesting population in the world : Middle Schoolers.  The haikus that follow were inspired by a day at work:

 

* robotic gesutres

I am more uncomfortable

than the speaker

 

*one minute speech

torture for middle schoolers

I learn their pet peeves

 

*the boys timid toes

paler underneath the water

he stays ankle deep

 

*roaming the hallway

classroom teachers shut their doors

the monster unleashes

 

(Interestingly enough, I wrote that last one  about a separate incident the same day Sandy Hook occurred)- May that town remain in our thoughts and prayers.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
