Our class’s dance was really dumb;
it was my first one ever.
And to the next one — will I go?
My answer is “Ha! NEVER!”
All the boys just ran around,
playing tag and yelling
while we girls discussed them all
and what they thought? No telling!
Later, Tara, who’s quite brave,
asked a boy to dance,
and he turned the brightest red
and, at her, did not glance.
He started swaying back and forth —
his dancing was so weird,
and as the couple strangely danced,
several kids just sneered.
When the song was at an end,
Tara left the floor,
and we girls decided then —
boys are quite a bore!
Yes, dances in the seventh grade
are just a waste of time,
but in grade eight, they might be fun
cause we’ll be in our prime!
