The Dreaded Strap

One day in high school

someone put a thumb tack on a chair

and our teacher sat down

and popped right back up

with rage in her eyes

ready to murder the student

who dared do such a thing to her

When no one admitted to

the dasdardly deed

she strapped us all twice

It was the only time

I was strapped and it changed

my feelings about that teacher forever


About Newfoundland Traveller

I'm a Newfoundlander with a love of reading, writing and travelling. I've travelled around our province and lived in four provinces of Canada. I love a good book and a good blog. My family means the world to me, and some day I hope to travel to many countries of the world with my husband and sons' families.
