The Bubble Poem

New from Burma
“I never rest
I practice much
my bubble test.

“I know lots
I’m not in trouble
My teacher taught me
how to bubble

“My mama works
a shift, a double,
So I don’t have to
I learn to bubble

“To study stars
some use the Hubble
I don’t study
I learn to bubble

“Dad’s out of work
He’s grown some stubble
That won’t be me
‘cuz I can bubble”

The Phoenix rises
from the rubble
The childrens rises
from the bubble

Double double
toil and trouble
cauldron burn
and children bubble

(For an end to too much testing!)
