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
a boy daydreamingCan 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.
