The Bus

by Robert Pottle

The Bus by Robert Pottle

Sixty kids and one adult—
you gotta love those odds.
The perfect place for pulling pranks
and throwing paper wads.
Hank is standing on his head.
Billy’s playing ball.
Peter wet his pants again.
Tasha pushes Paul.
Steven steals, Kevin cries.
Millicent is missing.
Katie punched her cousin Keith.
Ben and Jen are kissing.
Me, I’m taking lots of notes
on public transportation.
I think the bus provides me with
the finest education.

From I'm Allergic to School: Funny Poems and Songs About School

This book contains 18 hilarious poems and songs about the funnier-than-fiction misadventures that occur every day at school, such as ripping pants on the playground, stapling shirts to shoelaces in art class, having embarrassing “accidents” at the kindergarten concert, and scoring unlikely game-winning soccer goals. Pottle has performed these poems in schools from coast to coast, so it’s no surprise they passed Meadowbrook Press’s poetry panel testing with flying colors. The four-color illustrations by Mike and Carl Gordon that accompany each poem/song are equally entertaining and giggle-packed!
