Ekphrastic Poem

[image included]

It was the teacher’s to assign
Who sat in each row and line.
Hung so proudly on display
Students work from yesterday.
Words and drawings illustrate
What the teacher would relate.
Teachers brought something to show.
Students came up row by row.

Cursive lost the writing race
Technology’s now in its place.
Dressing up is not the style
We wear jeans once in a while.
Austerity we don’t embrace.
We put up posters in its place.
Things have changed so very much
Are we any more in touch?
