As l have noted, l have been cleaning out old stuff, from my Junk-Pile of Life. You know, the nic-nacs, momentoes and things you accumulated over Time.

l found this browned, old note paper . . . which l carefully unfolded.

l cannot believe l remembered this after l read it.

So . . . from about sixty years ago, here is . . .

.    The Student's Prayer

Now l sit me down to study,

l pray the Lord l won't go nutty.

And if l fail to learn this junk,

l pray thee Lord that l won't flunk.

 

When l die, don't pity me at all,

Just lay my bones in study hall.

And pile my books upon my desk,

And tell the teachers l did my best.

 

Now l lay me down to rest,

l pray l'II pass tomorrow's test.

And if l die before l wake,

That's one less test l'II have to take.

Lol, i wasnt sure if this was a real life story or another Milton Berle!  I see your sense of humor was already forming at that young age!

Thanks for sharing, brother:)

Actually, as l can remember now, this was a poem that made its way around high school.

When l posted it last night, l did change "lay" to "sit" in the first line.

But l did win a poetry contest in college, like an uncle did. He won a $100 dollars in the late 1940s. A lot of money back then. l won a cold pizza. l forgot all about it until l found part of the poem l wrote in some papers two decades ago. l didn't think it was very good.

Wow, $100 in the 40s is probably like $500+ now! 

A cold pizza??? :confused: Wonder who decided on the prize? 

If youre right and it wasnt that good, would you say a cold pizza was appropriate?:confused: I wonder what the other contestants wrote.

The English Dep't decided on the prize.

What the other contestants wrote was foul-mouth filth.

As this stuff was read aloud over the PA system, many people gawked at each other in disbelief that such obscenities were even allowed. Several, mostly girls, left.
