Online Is Fine by Kenn Nesbitt

The schools are now open
but, this year, at mine,
the teachers and students
are meeting online.

It’s quite a bit different,
but I think it’s cool,
since this way I’ll never
be tardy to school.

My mom doesn’t yell at me,
making a fuss
that, if I don’t hurry,
I might miss the bus.

To meet with my teacher
or talk to my tutor,
I roll out of bed and
turn on the computer.

I don’t need my backpack,
my shoes, or my coat.
It saves so much time when
your school is remote.

I don’t pack a lunch
and I don’t take a shower,
which means I can sleep in
a whole extra hour.
