A Poem For You

It is crunch time here in New York. In a few weeks students take their big assessment in ELA and Math. In honor of all those teachers doing their best to get their students ready for these tests, I am sharing a poem with you! Enjoy!



Difficult Math Test
By: Robert Scotellaro

Whoopie! A test! Whoopie! A test!
We’re having a difficult test!
We’d also enjoy being kicked by a mule,
then dipped in a caldron of bubbling drool,
but a difficult test is best!

A woodpecker pecking a tune on your head,
then trapped in a might collapsible bed,
or dancing barefooted with ol’ Frankenstein,
sure, all of these things, why of course, would be fine,
but a difficult test is best!

Or baked in a pie in an oven too hot,
and having your fingers all tied in a knot,
then using a chair made of porcupine quills,
can also provide you a great deal of thrills,
but a difficult test is best!

Or put in a vise and then squeezed till you’re flat,
or sharing your room with a twenty-foot rat,
and then wearing some tight cactus underwear,
but none of, no none of these things can compare
to the joys of a difficult test!

Happy Reading!
