In an art classroom not too far away,
a room full of 4th graders lay victim and prey;
to a redheaded teacher;
who wasn't in the mood to play.
She grew tired of their tomfoolery as they yarn weaved, on a beautiful Tuesday.
Turning her facade over,
to a side that was intimidating and less than okay,
she quieted them down
before she could say;
And just then as she had her lecture on play,
a fly flew in her mouth and she went grey!
Gagging and hacking through her throat,
she put up quite the display!
The children were a riot
as they almost hollered hooray;
as their redheaded teacher became the victim (not them),
and saved and made their day!
And then they recited to me: "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly, my oh my, I think she might die!"
***insert eye roll***
“Well, excuse me kids, but I’m still well into my heyday,
Now get back to work on your art projects okay?!”
