CQZLQ Gfock Period One, you start full of pep, ln this math class you've got to be hep. Figures and theorems go tumbling past- You could catch 'em, if they weren't so fast. The period lags, the minutes crawl, Time hangs heavy, as if trying to stall. You wish they'd invented a much better ticker To make those clock-hands turn a bit quicker. But on to your French sans a moment of spite, Finding you ought to have studied last night, For the teacher decides to quiz all the class With a verb test you're sure you cannot pass. The clock ticks on and laughs at your pl ight As you pensively gaze at your paper so white. An obstinate tick-a refractory tock, As the minutes creep across the great clock. From third floor to first you leap in a bound, Rush into English--all fours off the ground. Gerunds and similes clash in the air, As the agonized teacher tears at her hair. But nothing compares to her anguish as some, For time on their hands, revert to their gum, And chewing in time to the second hand's beat Help pass the time by tapping their feet. Off to history where things never go right The date you recall is the cute one last night. Battles and treaties and Paul Revere's ride Get you confused-you wish you could hide. The clock proves no aid, and slowly does drag Till students and teacher are limp as a rag. Nation-wide problems just don't mean a thing, Patiently waiting for that bell to ring. l-lunger pains gnawing, you stagger to lab, With nitrates, potassium and sulphur you dab. Page sinqtccii. Food on your mind, you look at the time The way those hands creep is really a crime. lt's lZ:l5 now-half an hour to go, Never before has time seemed so slow. You look once again, for action you yearn, The harder you look, the slower they turn! Lunch! Food! Fodder! Grub! Yum! Crunch! Zoop! Blub! Oom! Crack! Ugh! Ahh! Rush! Crush! Times up! Blah! l-lot dog! A minute and a half to go! Mustard! Ouch! But these kids shove so! l-lash! What goes into this, nobody knows! Milk! You spilled it all over my clothes! Appetite dulled, you stampede to gym To hang from the bars and risk life and limb. But you don't mind, for bones are soon mended Time you don't notice while hanging suspended For, though we all know that exercise ls sure to make us well and wise, The fun in gym is practically nil Because that clock stands almost still! Reluctant feet dragging, you reach study hall Time spent gazing at the clock on the wall. l-lalf in a stupor, half in a daze, Your eyes take a strange fishy glaze. The second hand moves in slow, palsied jerks, Assured that George poured glue in the works. Time is now crawling on hand and on knee, You dream of the bell that'll make you free. Spirits are soaring, the weather is fine, But pity the one who stays in period nine! 4l
