High Standards

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Some do some don't.
While others may come,
To observe the latest in Fall fashions.
With no intentions of opening a book.
And yet...
There will be a few in view,
Seen sharing their crack...
Between classes.
While those who say they love to teach...
Will come prepared reeking of alcohol.
Or found sipping from a 5th...
As the principal pays a surprise visit,
To give moral support...
To everyone brave enough,
Who left their weapons with security guards!

'I'd like to welcome you all.
And hopefully we will maintain our high standards! '

Which liars deny,
