PO-EMotion -- Shame




CAUGHT THROWING A PAPER WAD ACROSS THE CLASSROOM

I'm sorry
I regret it
I know that it was wrong.

(But still
I can't believe that
I made a shot that long!)

  1. I know this kid. He's the same one who has to jump up and touch the top of every door jamb he passes through! And he really is sorry, but that doesn't stop him from trying the shot or jumping the next time! You made me laugh this morning!

    1. This was inspired by a girl throwing paper wads at boys at the next table over, but I've got a boy who throws shots at the trashcan every time he gets the chance, and YES those boys who jump for EVERY door jamb! (Good to know it's not just mine...)

  5. Hysterical! I would be more proud than ashamed, but I love this month of emotions, and how you keep putting your unique twist on it!
    What a weaver of words you are!

  6. Mary Lee, my husband still likes to pretend he is the basketball star every now and then with his crafty long shots to the trash. Such a fun poem you wrote. I don't think that my husband or any students I've known would feel remorse for their basketball prowess with trashcan hoops.
