I was walking past a school today
They had their windows open.
From above my head
I heard the teacher talking
Than the gentle roar of jabbering children.
And the teacher asked
“Why are you all talking?!”
Immediately I thought
Because we have something to say!
I chuckled at my ever so quick wit
And wanted so badly to yell that out as I kept walking.
It would have made the kids laugh.
And the teacher cringe.
It would have been disrespectful
So I bid my thoughts silent.
You just don’t say what’s in your head.
Because it doesn’t serve a good purpose.
