I am an old man and had a yearning
To go school and do a bit of learning.
Though at times I at times I felt rather foolish,
While I learned to write, my grandson taught English.
But I never went to school at a young age,
I did not know things you would learn in sixth grade.
My family was supportive and kind,
My daughter packed my lunch and I went in the fall time.
Children would run up to me and ask,
"Aren't you a teacher 'cause you can't be in our class!"
I would, "I never got the chance to learn,
I am old now and have have time to burn."
I did well in my class and did my best,
My teacher said that she was impressed.
Recently I graduated from high school,
Getting to finally learn truly was "cool".
