Here's a contribution written by granddaughter Jackie.

School (Middle)

Ah, the word school
How it rolls off the tongue.
Then why, I ask, is it hated
by practically everyone?

I ask this to people
and the answers I get
vary and differ on account
of the reason they fret.

The teachers all reply:

"The students are rude
and the days are too long.
The pay is too low and
all the answers are wrong."

Then the students reply:

"The quizzes are many
and the teachers are mean.
The notes are forever
and hey, I'm a teen!"

So the answers all vary,
but one thing it seems,
when down to the point,
just one answer remains...

"I'm too lazy to work!"
