Break Time At School
Balls are flying across the playground,
rolling down the roofs,
and occasionally landing on the unfortunate person's head.
The line for the canteen is a slithering snake, streaming down the asphalt,
The court opposite is choked with happy buyers, clutching tasty goods,
while jealous passer-bys look on.
Girls giggle as they stroll across the field,
boys swagger in groups of 10 or more,
hoping to catch the eye of anyone foolish enough to spare a glance towards them.
Football games are being held on the grass,
often interrupted by the oblivious people who wander through the field,
volleyball players swat at the ball from either side of the big net,
and cricket players gather in groups of eleven.
Secret keepers whisper,
And weirdos roll around the field like bananas.
So in short,
NOTHING IS QUIET.
