Our Classroom Is Covered in Sparkles
Buy the book The Elephant Repairman
Our classroom is covered in sparkles,
and tinsel that twinkles and shines.
The kids are all caked with confetti that glows
with glistening rainbow designs.
Our teacher is spattered with spangles.
She’s shimmering, shiny, and bright.
She looks like a disco ball burst overhead
and splashed her with speckles of light.
Our desks are all glimmering brightly.
The chairs and the carpets are gleaming.
There isn’t a surface inside of our room
that isn’t bedazzling and beaming.
Our janitor’s grumpy and grumbling.
To him it’s just that much more litter.
I guess that we shouldn’t share Valentine’s cards
in envelopes loaded with glitter.
