Ancient Romans, Ancient Greeks
Buy the book When the Teacher Isn't Looking
Ancient Romans, ancient Greeks,
carved for days or often weeks,
working fingers to the bone,
writing words in blocks of stone.
Just imagine all the yelling
if a Greek messed up her spelling.
Other Greeks I’m sure would chase her.
I’m so glad for my eraser.
