Catholic School Questions (a second attempt at a question poem–unrhymed) (NaPoWriMo 4/15/2014 0

What was it that
called you to the
convent and classroom?

And does that
habit make your
head ache and sweat?

Why does the tallest
kid sit right
in front of me?

Could you please
have him crouch
down a dash?

Will I have
time to pee
between classes?

What if there’s
not and I
wet my pants?

Do you take pride
in the power
of pop quizzes?

And knowing Paraguay’s
rainfall comes in
in handy when?

Will I need it
for a house loan
or library card?

Really, why
should I
remember that?

Why does the
phy ed teacher not
shower after class?

Do you think
devil’s do much
math in hell?

Will this class
be remission for
all of my sins?

And why in
spelldowns must
only one pupil win?

Who thought up
this game with
such humiliation?

Do you ever
hear the wishes
in your students’ heads?

How much higher
must I raise
my hand?

Why does that one
girl only sit
alone at lunchtime?

Why can’t I
make myself
find out?

Does God provide
all the answers
to my questions?

You teach me
to believe;
I still don’t know.
