We were young when they started with the Alphabet,
The numbers came right after that;
Language came soon and so did grammar,
All we could do about it then was murmur!
Before I knew it, came by Geography of third grade,
By then, I couldn’t distinguish between Belfast or Belgrade;
Not to be left behind was History,
Which to this day remains a mystery!
They started the sixth with elaborate math,
Which to most was a difficult path;
It seemed a while before it all made sense,
Which explains all the initial absence!
The first science I heard was of the moral kind,
Which helped explain the goal of mankind;
Science and math problems were of different kind,
To help comprehend it all, the teacher was the master mind!
The ninth grade introduced us to Calculus,
Practical use for it seemed much less;
Physics and Chemistry soon followed,
Equations and balancing were quickly mastered!
Finally we ended up in grade eleven,
We all felt like in heaven;
It was soon time to get out of school,
Wasn’t that like being cool?
Finished school and moved on to college,
Without it all, life would have been a carnage;
It wasn’t too late to realize,
That quality education was indeed a prize!
