When I was small I was not tall

In school I placed the third of all

We had to stand up every day

Beside our desks to pledge and pray !

That’s how our schoolday would begin

“Stand up erect and do not grin”,

We wrote in ink with nib and pen

And studied with our texts open !

We raised our hands to speak out loud

There was no chaos in that crowd

For discipline was number one

We studied hard and still had fun !

I miss the ways we used to learn

Each grade we got, we truly earned

While now the grades have no import

They’re given as a last resort !
