How Was School? - Lindsay MacRae

Mum can’t see why it’s uncool
To ask me cheerfully
‘How was school?’
She shakes her head and rolls her eyes
To all of the following replies:
      ‘All right
      Not bad
      You what?
      It went
      It was
      Couldn’t really say
      It’s dust
      It’s over
      Stop nagging will you
      What’s for tea?
      Same stuff
      The usual
      Can’t remember
      Ask me again in mid-December
      Did some work
      Then sang a hymn.’
My mum is such a peculiar creature
She knows how school is
She’s the teacher!!

Lindsay MacRae (born 1961) Scotland
