Places – School

It was the entrance sign
and bright logo that didn't match
our jumpers

It was the long wide corridor
full of pushing pupils and shouts
and students and Put your tie on properly please!

It was the bully at the back of the class
laughing when you got the answer right
calling you a Nerd, boff, geek!

It was laughing in the sun
and having a gossip about who
and when and what and how.

It was the water fights
and getting sent to the head
but it was worth it!

It was the importance of nailing the exam
that would decide
your whole future.
