This was written when we had our ten year school reunion. I included names of the teachers and ‘in’ jokes. I’m really proud of this one actually and it cerctainly got a few laughs on the night!
Ten years since…..
Ten whole years it has been,
Since years at school as a teen,
Since in Maths we saw Chicken Legs dance,
And over her glasses, she did glance,
Since ‘significant’ Lord of the Flies,
Was a ‘bitty’ chapter in our lives,
Since small, white notes were always passed,
As the back turned they flew so fast!
Since Drama was a Jolley time,
Where farting and burping, both a crime,
Since Collier said ‘Oui’ and ‘Nein’,
Oh Howe did we survive this time?
Since some teachers went into a Buckle,
Pea shoots flew as all did chuckle,
Since Peanut came out of her shell,
If we said too much, she did yell,
Since strict sir Sealy ruled P.E,
But on the fields we could be free,
Since Music gave us fun and smiles,
A purple tracksuit you could see for Miles,
Since Lappy had scared us all so,
But Good Head on his shoulders though,
Since Science gave us Bushes and Woods,
Fires and chemicals and sometimes floods,
And Big Man Watts was the guy in charge,
Where no problem, too small or large,
It really has been a whole decade,
But our funny memories will never fade…
