What a fun poem to read. Silly students, not to want your handouts. I'll take 'em!

You can even make a list of handouts entertaining, Verna! Great meter, rhyme, and word choices. Even tho there is no plot per se, I still wanted to keep reading.

Brilliant and fun! I think I laughed the most at "Caesar’s Funeral’s Oration." :)

Congrats for your win on this hodgepodge of awesomeness!

Oh Verna! What a delightful, clever entry! I can't wait to share it with my sister and my friend who is also a poet. Your English teacher experience gave you the enviable position of making this sort of thing informative but also just plain fun. I can only imagine what you were like in the classroom! I'm sure no one fell asleep or was bored with a teacher who could produce something this entertaining and good!

I had to read this out loud. It seemed to accelerate as I went along. I began smiling. It's a teacher's list, for sure!
Congratulations, Verna!
