April 21: New Girl Lai

by allisonkujiraoka

The new girl in school

didn’t know our rule:


Thought teacher a tool

and herself too cool–

Child’s play.

Stubborn as a mule

but made the boys drool.

They’ll pay.

*Note:  A lai is a nine-line poem with an aabaabaab rhyme scheme, the a lines having five syllables and the b lines two syllables each.
