My Excellent Education

How to juggle.
How to hop.
How to make
my knuckles pop.

How to whinny.
How to cluck.
How to talk
like Donald Duck.

How to wiggle
both my ears.
How to fake
convincing tears.

How to yo-yo,
capture flies,
roll my tongue,
and cross my eyes.

How to make a
piggy snout.
How to make
my eyes bug out.

These are things
I learned in school.
Ain’t it cool?
