Today my teacher's wearing an 80's dress,
To remind all of us she used to be an actress.
I'm surrounded by kids saying:
"You're lower than us!"
Have they no respect?
So I got an F plus?!
I can't take it! Oh the drama!
When my teacher wears peacock feathers,
It makes her look like Cleopatra!
This is injustice!
Two times today,
I've been in the principals office.
This is outrage!
I want to go home.
I want to go back,
Where I can roam.
Back to my calmness zone,
Where I don't have to worry,
About using the wrong tone.
Q: So this is another poem spoken through one of the three sisters?
A: Yes, this is Sky. Sky is very uptight and sensitive. She is good at many things, such as math, history and other types of homework.
Q: You seem to really catch the feeling of school! How can you know this when you've only been to public school for kindergarten!
A: I spent a lot of time with kids who have been in school. Obviously, they don't like it all that much, when I was in kindergarten I remember having a rough time.
Q: Can you explain the last line....about using the wrong tone?
A:Where she doesn't have to worry about being so careful all the time.
Q: That teacher...she's nothing like your teacher...like your teacher doesn't wear 80's dresses to class does she? DOES SHE????
A: (laughs) No, but I wanted a feel of a different kind of teacher. A teacher that is funky and fun, but the kids don't like her. Heck, I don't even like her.
Q: But the teacher seems to like herself!
Q: She's confidant! She doesn't care what the kids think!
Q: Kind of like your teacher.
