Welcome to your first day of school,
We're the administration and staff,
We make all the rule's,
We've drawn up a graph

A list of basics,
You will need here,
Adequate supplies,
Dress code guidelines,
For the whole year.

First Day of School,
No time to pule,
Steady calmness, self-control
A must to use, when you enroll.

Received my posted homeroom,
I can't be late,
Class room locations,
I must get straight.

On the first day of school,
No time to second guess,
It's all so confusing,
So much stress,
Oh what relief,
It's time for recess.

Summer was short,
Got plenty of sun,
Seems it was over,
Before it begun,

Another school year is underway,
Like all America's children
I'll trundle off each morning for a day
Of Readin,' 'Ritin,' and 'Rithmetic!
And a whole lot more,
There are 38 other programs on my class schedule,
Learnin just the 3 R's
Has now become a thing of the past
Carrying books from class to class

Darwin's Theory of Evolution
I don't accept this solution
Pond Scum is what he told,
How the human race began to unfold,

The smarter we get, the dumber we think.
Maybe just try to excogitate,
Just who was Darwin to be so bold,
To ever think,
God wasn't in control,

God created pond scum,
He created mankind,


I think that it is so dumb,
To say Man came from pond scum,
God created everything,
The first Book in the Bible tell us that,

Holding on to God's word,
When I raise my hand,
My answer will be,
God created the universe,
and everything in it,
This I understand.

When I submit this answer in class,
I know I'll surely be harassed,
I'll be an outcast,
I just hope I can pass!
Another "First Day of School"

Thank you for your comment.

I was on vacation for about a month.

I was ill with bronchitis the first 2 weeks of it.

I missed reading and writing the articals on faithwriters.

God bless all

I love the line:
The smarter we get, the dumber we think.

I work in the school system and no truer word could be spoken of the average person in most schools today.

"The smarter we get, the dumber we think." - nice line, and oh so true!
