Things We Carry

You’ll hear people say
The Most Important Things were Not learned in classrooms,
but I remember the first thing I learned
in high school

Mr. Pare’s English Class
He said
You never know what
a person carries with them.

For a while the class looked sorry
yeah, we all hold sorrows
I mean I lost my stupid hamster
And Jack’s brother was deployed

Sean-Mack What’s His Name
paid rent in his parent’s house
and Kris danced through foot pains
And Mr. Pare

Well, as much weight as he carried,
he laughed it off with bittersweet
Lasagna/Iggy’s Doughboys jokes
