About the Poem
I wrote this one day when I was frustrated with all of the end-of-year testing, stress, trash, and such that I get at my school. It mostly is a joke, but sometimes I wonder. I really enjoy school, but it feels like it is 30 days too long. This results in a testy mind and lashing tongue, but summer is the cure-all.

Hey, I'm Keeping A Good Attitude
|by Quinten Christensen|
Schoolís such a bore, melancholic, and old -
The exciting is past and the gossipís all told.
Teachers, they play on their computers all day;
While the kids talk as though they always had something to say.
Bullies roam free, girlfriends not true,
Good students (or saints) are understandably few.
While some rough guys constantly feud.
Hey, Iím keeping a good attitude.
School lunch is horrifying, nasty, and cold;
Those who try it are exceptionally bold.
Our school teamís a joke, our mascot a bore,
Every day our faces get creamed to the floor.
The dances are repetitious, hot, and dumb,
Many wonít dance, others wonít come.
The kid next to me just noisily spewed,
But hey, Iím keeping a good attitude.
Itís harder to get straight Fís than Aís,
And all count with hope the minusing days.
For summer calls lazily, promising fun
If only you get your school work done.
To those who do not, I sadly say,
Your summer of fun has just lost its ray
Of hope for times always better ahead,
But you just got stuck with Hades instead.
I donít mean to exaggerate, be offensive, or rude.
This whole time Iíve kept a good attitude.
