School’s Out

on the last day of school
the bell rang in four
short playful bursts
then a long one.
someone with a sense of occasion.
i’d have played ‘school’s out’.
miss davis would have liked it.
miss geary wouldn’t.
she said goodbye to some who were leaving
then went back in to work.
strange really, because the sun was out.
but not for long.
