More Of The Same (1949)
larrylark

Worn clogs
 1
clicked across corridoor floor
 2
while disinfected smell choked throats.
 3
We chanted a mantra of multiplication,
 4
dreading being called to answer.
 5
 
 
A mop slopped among dust.
 6
Sunlight flickered on a chalk board.
 7
Caretakers shadow crawled towards noon.
 8
Rounders practice in the afternoon.
 9
It always rained.
 10
We waited for the fifties to be ushered in,
 11
followed by more of the same.
