Poetry Friday: “First Day in the Cafeteria”
OK, ok…so I’m a bit late. I know, school has already started and here I am without my late pass.
Students have been back to their classes for one or two weeks now and although I had wanted to post this earlier, I kept forgetting! Between my wife’s and my lack of sleep with the arrival of our new daughter, Phoebe, 4 weeks ago and that 5-day-long weekend announcing gig at the local fair, my time – and my mind – have both taken some serious hits.
But, hey, today’s Friday the 13th! What better day to write about school?!?
And remember…there’s plenty more poetry out there. For the complete Poetry Friday roundup, be sure to visit Jen at Teach Mentor Texts!
“First Day in the Cafeteria”
They could have served us burgers.
They could have served us fries.
They could have served us mac ‘n cheese
or deep-fried chicken thighs.
They could have served cold pizza
or greasy beef pot pies,
so why oh why – our first day back –
do we get “Chef’s Surprise??”
