The Brainiac

The was once this
boy from school.
who was so intelligent,
that it made him uncool.
The whole school teased him,
all during the day,
and even out side when
he went out to play.

He held a straight face,
We carried bookbags.
He carried a briefcase.
We dressed to be "fly."
He wore a suit and tie.

During the day,
we layed or heads on our desk.
when the teacher gave us a test,
we moaned and we groaned.
He alwayed raised his hand,
Never did he get the answer wrong.

The teacher loved him so much,
we felt it was no fair,
Some girl took out her gum,
and stuck it in his hair.
She said that,
he was the teachers brat.

When he came home,
his mother asked "How was your day?"
She already knew by the way his face looked. He said "Hard. I need a book."

"Which one?" she asked,
giving his hair a playful tussle.
Human Knowledge by Bertrand Russell.
Dragging his feet across the floor,
He went up to his bedroom,
and closed the door.
His Mother said, Sweetie Dear,
don't take too long with that book,
I'm almost finished with the food,
that I cooked.

A poetic mystery who loves enigma, I am the boldly quiet listener, My world is a broken puzzle, and my poetry is the missing pieces. By day I am the Philosophical Wonderer, By night the voice of a journeys, long road ahead. I am poet, deep down to the core. more…
