Absent (press)

Absent

Bouncing in
then looking up
and seeing the board
glee filled them
"substitute teacher"
almost an hour
torturing
the stranger
spit wads
secret notes
swapped names
soon the agony
of a stranger.

Bell rings
little comfort
for the woman
slumped in the chair
the little terrors leave
a messy room.

Lol this poem made me laugh.
I really like the alliteration, and the first two lines, they flow AWESOME...but the last two lines don't really flow, and they seem to stray away form the topic, but that's just me...xD
