I saw this on Ladyleemanila’s blog: https://ladyleemanilablog.wordpress.com/2016/11/29/panakot-uwak-miniature-writing-challenge-71/
“A miniature writing challenge – that looks like fun”, I thought. The topic for the week is “Boredom” and I have just the short poem for that. I am not sure if it quite fits the description of miniature but it is much shorter than my usual poems.
A school day
The teachers voice, a background buzz;
Lulls me to sleep, it always does;
It has a nearly hypnotic effect;
My brain, shut down, does effect;
Its faculties seem to turn to mush;
Day dreams slide in, with a rush;
Does this presumptuous teacher really think?
That all this nonsense will ever sink;
Into my mind, which wanders too;
Far distant lands, reserved for few.

Of course, there must be a cake to go with the poem, and here it is:
Of course, this poem is a bit naughty because school is not at all boring. My oldest son has been writing exam and I have been testing him on his work. I found Grade 7 history, geography and science totally fascinating. Much more so than when I was at school myself. I wonder why that is?
