Squeaky Chair

Scribbling and scratching uninterrupted
Constant, unchanging, and perfect
Scribbling and scratching uninterrupted
Constant, unchanging, and perfect

Scribbling and scratching uninterrupted
Constant, unchanging, and perfect
Scribbling and scratching–
Quiet, tentative squeak erupted

Silence
Brief silence
Silence not unnoted
Nevermind, ignore it

Scribbling and scratching uninterrupted
Constant, unchanging, and perfect
Scribbling and–
Brave, wrenching squeak erupted

Glares
Silent glares
Glares not unnoted
Nevermind, ignore it

Scribbling and scratching uninterrupted
Constant, unchanging, and–
Horrible, persistent squeak erupted
Horrible, persistent squeak erupted
Horrible, persistent squeak erupted
Horrible, persistent squeak–

“Silence!”
Shouts the headmaster
“Silence! Silence! Silence!
I will no longer tolerate your outbreaks, Chair!
Pencils should be to paper, scribbling and scratching!
There is no squeaking in this classroom!
I will not abide it!
Silence!”

Silence
Silence
Silence
Silence

Then

Scribbling and scratching uninterrupted
Constant, unchanging, and

Perfect
