Twas the night before school

Twas the night before school, and all through the house
only J.B. was stirring, Casey was eating a mouse.
The planners were laid by the front door with care
Teachers were practicing their mean, evil stare

The children were sleepless while laying in bed
While visions of good grades danced in their heads
Amanda is sleepless and gone without nap
She hopes on tomorrow, no children to slap

The lessons are planned and the posters are hung
All in anticipation of the first bell rung
Hoping that they will make it through the first day
Wondering why they do this for not enough pay

Out on the street there arose pitter-patter
Chance and Chloe looked up to see what was the matter
Sara looked out the window to see all the fus
Oh crap it is the morning, that is a school bus

I hope all your days go smoothly and swell
I hope you are smiling when you hear that first bell
David, Allison, Sara, and Wife, I say this to you...

I read this at school so I couldn't comment but I LOVE this! I'm printing it out to hang on the wall in my classroom.
