FREEING UNCLE JIMMY

Lunchroom 101
(March 29, 2004)

Noise.
All this noise.
It's making me sick.
It's making me numb.
Bodies everywhere.
What is that on my plate?
Nobody will help me
Open
My milk carton.
Can't they
Ever
Shut up?
Hurry Hurry!
Eat your food-
You must go outside and play.
Do you want to miss
Your recess?
Dizzy.
Hands over ears.
My screams are
Somehow
Heard above all the others'.
We must do something about her.
She's not normal.


No Alternative
(March 29, 2004)

Four square.
Four squares
One round ball.
Bounce,
Only one bounce.
Not on the line.
Ha ha ha!
You cannnnnnn't hit it.
Youuuuuuuu cannnnnnn't hit it.
I hit it!
I hit it!
SMASH!!
Youuuuuuu missssssed it.
That's no fair!
Youuuuuuu cannnnnn't hit it.
Rita Retard! Rita Retard!
No, you can't sit outside
By yourself
And read,
You must play
Nicely
With the other children.

Rita Retard!
Ha ha! Oink Oink! Ha ha!
Rita Retard...Rita Retard!
She's very smart,
But doesn't get along with
The other children.
Klutz!
Look at her.
Rita Retard...Rita Retard!
Ha ha! Oink Oink! Ha ha!
We don't know what to do with her,
She's so far ahead of the others,
Especially in reading and writing.
Let her read while the others
Study/Fight/Study/Play/Study...
Teacher's gone.
Easy target-
Bullseye!
Rita Retard...Rita Retard!
Ha ha! Oink Oink! Ha ha!
