School Reunion


school reunion

I haven’t a clue what to wear

I’m anxious about who will be there

Old friends, I had quite a few

Teachers I liked, some I hated too.

Classmates from all those years ago.

Will I recognise them,how will I know

Who is who, will they know me

If I don’t go I’ll never see

If they have all done better than me.

Did they get a degree, have a kid,

Get a big house overlooking a

mortgage on a house in Madrid.

I wouldn’t mention about being on the dole

That was a right pain in the hole

They’d probably all be done up to the nines

In my Penneys dress  I’d be dying

The bitches of course would all be there

They always went everywhere

With their snide remarks

I remember so well

I should let them all go to hell.

But I put on my borrowed Jimmy Choos

What do I have  to lose.

I hold my head high,put on a smile

Although I feel like running a mile

I think that I am ready at last

To finally face the ghosts of my past.
