He’s alone in his thoughts as he sits in class. His mind too full of wonder to focus on the task. “Wake up, says his teacher, you’ve got work to do.” “Science and math and a test or two.” But he never hears a word she says. He is lost deep in the fantasy inside his head. He dreams of a world far away Where he can laugh and play. Where girls and boys Can have all the candy and toys. Where dragons can fly And castles soar into the sky. Where monsters roar And eagles soar. Where there are no rules And never a day of school. That is where his mind is at, All day, in that chair he sat. But teacher don’t despair. For while homework he might not care. That boy who you scold Might be the one who changes the world.

Clean up Time

What a giant mess this room is,
There is stuff everywhere.
It’s on the floor, in the closet,
And piled in the chair.
There are toys on the bed,
Toys on the dresser, and boxes
Resting against the wall.
There is a pile of clothes
Stacked in the middle
That must be at least
Ten feet tall!
And I still haven’t mentioned
The giant heap of trash
Resting by the door.
Or the gum stuck to
The ceiling, or the
Papers covering the floor.
There are shoes and socks
In the corner, lying in a bunch.
 And what is that
Awful smell? It must be
Last week's lunch!
If my mom were to see 
This room, she’d deliver
Me quite the line.
But luckily she’s not due
Home for another hour
So I still have time!
