Boring Poem #2

if you're inattending a tedious speech

class lecture have no electronic device

try this quiet hand-and-finger game play:

drum, drum, drum, drum,

spider, spider, spider, spider

tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap

pan-cake, pan-cake, pan-cake, pan-cake

stretch your arms way over your head

and yaaawwwwwnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

repeat, repeat, pick up the beat

until such time as you retreat

2022 Jacqueline Jackson
