When the Teacher Isn't Looking

When the Teacher Isn't Looking - by Kenn Nesbitt

Falling Asleep in Class

I fell asleep in class today,
as I was awfully bored.
I laid my head upon my desk
and closed my eyes and snored.

I woke to find a piece of paper
sticking to my face.
I'd slobbered on my textbooks
and my hair was a disgrace.

My clothes were badly rumpled
and my eyes were glazed and red.
My binder left a three-ring
indentation in my head.

I slept through class, and probably
I would have slept some more,
except my students woke me
as they headed out the door.

Who knew school lunches and detention could be so funny? Kenn Nesbitt, that's who! Do you attend a school like the one Kenn Nesbitt describes in this hysterically funny collection of poems? There's a frenzied food fight in the cafeteria. For show-and-tell, kids burp the ABCs. Recently, "pet days" have been banned (and for good reason). And the funniest things happen when the teacher isn't looking. Kids and teachers rate these rhymes A+ (and you will too).

This blackboard is "chalk-full" of loony mayhem! Kenn Nesbitt Must have spent a lot of time in the principal's office. Where elese can you get a sense of humor this rich?


--J. Patrick Lewis, author of A Hippopotamusn't and many other books of verse

I remember school, and it wasn't funny, yet these poems are hilarious. What gives?
--Calef Brown, author of Polkabats and Octopus Slacks
