Serious Learning? By CpSingleton © 2016

They said that I should’ve been more serious,

Not to be so silly when in class.

I say turn that frown the other way around,

You grey skinned, silly ass.

Don’t stifle what you don’t understand,

Allow the petals to ring their tune.

Let them ride away from rigid structures and

Create their own worlds until noon.

If they’re not feeling algebra, 

Because it means little to their brains,

Give them freedom to fly higher!

You’ll soon see what it gains. 

Send them off on missions out

As far as they can travel!

Lead them down the goblin hole

With metaphysical puzzles to unravel.

Equip them with tools to dig for

Golden treasures that they create.

Go on! Put the likkle blighters 

In charge of their own fate.

Give them reason to start believing

That this world really ain’t so bad.

A squirt of mindfulness wouldn’t go a miss

It’s something I wish I’d have had.

Then you’ll have them learning with

Huge smiles upon their faces.

No yawns or groans and shuffling bones,

Nor angry basket cases.

It ain’t rocket science, sweet baby lips:

It’s plain old common whatsitsname.

Make it fun for your likkle ones

And they’ll be glad they came.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
