Its In The Bag
Reader Star Rating:
I'll not forget my day of woe,
T'was on my way to school,
With lunch inside a paper bag,
I felt like such a fool!
I hated that brown, paper bag,
It gave me urge to hide,
Until the kids were all in class,
I didn't cry, but tried.
I now was in my 8th grade year,
And hoped he noticed me,
That handsome boy in history class,
Was awfully cute to see.
But, soon came lunch-I had to grab
That brown and ugly bag,
And prayed that HE'D not see me,
As I cringed and almost gagged!
It just was so embarrassing,
The cool girls had to smirk,
They asked me what was in my bag,
But, they all knew-those jerks!
I went and ate all by myself,
And much to my surprise,
That handsome boy sat down by me
And looked into my eyes.
He said, "Don't fret, you're not alone,
That clique will make you gag!"
He cast a grin, then pointed to,
His own brown, paper bag!
"I keep it hid from every one,
Embarrassed they might brag,
A lunch is lunch no matter if,
It's in a paper bag!"
"But, now I have a friendly face,
Who understands my view,
And from now on I'd like to start,
Brown bagging it with you!"
