Jack & I have been doing well
2nd grade can sometimes be hell
Last week I had to eat mystery meat for lunch
Jack assured me he’d added something nice to it!
It was funny
Because the lunch lady we had was new
I pondered where the regular one went
She’s enjoying an early retirement
I shouldn’t worry about such things.
In class today,
They were trying to teach us simple math.
I was asked to tell my teacher what 1-1 would become…
I told her 0 was the answer she was looking for
At which point Jack thought it’d be fun to give his own version.
The kids all pointed and stared
All freaked out
Save for Tara.
She knew about Jack
So she wasn’t surprised
When the chalk on the board
Wrote a nice rhyme.
Mrs. Tinsley worked at school
She lived alone
In quiet solitude.
If there’s one of her now…
How many coffins will they need
When after death
She is inevitably found?
Naturally, upon seeing this
My teacher freaked out!
She grew afraid
Started making wild accusations
Asking who wrote such sick things?!
Eventually she lost her mind
A month later
Her body was found.
Strange coincidence right?
Now the whole neighborhood has a curfew.
On the bright side though,
We were let out of school for a few days
Which gave me plenty of time
To hang out with Tara.
