School Daze

Memoirs of an Eccentric Man

School Daze

The circus must be in town

All the ruckus going on…

I go to my front window


It is the neighborhood hoodlums.

They must be out of school.

I guess that big yellow thing should have tipped me off.

Running up and down the street

Like a herd of jackals.

Runny noses

Coats hanging off their heads

Screaming… good god!

Some people never learn.

Not all should procreate.

I shake my head.

I need booze.

Where in the hell are the parents?

Well, I guess we were that way once…

Mean as hell and full of life.

Where is that booze?
