    Description:
       Many teachers at my school have torn the speakers from their walls and/or thrown things at them because announcements interrupt class too often. This is for those teachers.

    -------------------------------------------


    O, bane of my classroom!
    This chalk will I throw
    At thy unholy sound!
    Vanity and pride
    Are your sins,
    Incestuous box!
    Your voice
    Above all others;
    And ears of
    My class you demand.
    No more, beast!
    Be torn from the wall
    Your head shall be,
    And your spaghetti
    Nerves snapped!
    No more ears to hear
    Nor mouth to speak!
    One hundred dollars I pay -
    An injustice.

      This is funny. Very much so actually. The whole old english thing, a very nice touch.

    I definently think that everyone hates that damn speker they give announcements over. It's about time somebody said it.

    Thank god it was someone who's funny.

      That made me laugh out loud! That is hillairous! I love the way you took a modern day subject and used old english, so fitting for teachers! My favorite was the beginning

    "O, bane of my classroom!

    At thy unholy sound!
    Vanity and pride
    Are your sins,
    Incestuous box!"

    But then the next line was hillarious, too! I loved it, going on my favs!

      hahahaha. nice use of language, with words like "bane" it all fits the story very well.
    Funny, and one nearly all can relate to, especially teachers!

    I don't know about the hundred dollar line...is that what the teacher is charged for the damage?

    Very well done, funny stuff

    be happy

      I love this! I can actually hear my teachers, well, at least the articulate ones yelling those very words at the announcement speakers. Its going on favorites, because it brightened my spirits. Thank you. Exams...meh. Needed comoedy, found it...well, kind of. Its completely true, but well put. I applaud you.

      I like this. I love the images this paints of the intercom. I love how you talk about hearing the annoying blare over everything that is already going on. I like the lines:
    "Be torn from the wall
    Your head shall be,
    And your spaghetti
    Nerves snapped!"
    The personification is great. I can see the wires escaping for the box like spagetti noodles from a colinder. This poem made me smile.

      As a teacher I can say it's totally annoying. Ours is an intercom system and they never wait until it totally comes on so you never hear who they are really calling from class.
    I think this is cute and hopw you gave a coopy to the teacher it most annoys. Unfortunately my speaker is set into the ceiling...nothing to pull off.

      hehehe, I can remember the aggravated looks my teachers used to get at those veritable perfect-interruptions. it seemed every time they'd go into something good the box would come alive and ask for someone to go somewhere... interrupting the flow of the lesson and forcing them to try and get everything back on track. I very much enjoyed this one! thanks for sharing and excellent job!

    Meow!
