Note from Inky : I’ve used the english terms for the younger end of school here, i realise they might be different elsewhere!
In response to the write club prompt “I am the law”
Written in a moment of insomnia by inky.
The posse in the playground are all taking cover –
there’s a new sheriff in town
Rolling into the playground on his wheeled silver horse
he’ll take on the bad guys (and raiders of course)
new hat, new leathers and britches
he’ll sort out the wild west of this dry gulch school
They took out the last sheriff in a high stakes duel
he landed on his bottom in the paddling pool!
And covered in sticky and given a fright
his deputies were in soapy suds for most of the night
The bandits they raided the tuck shop and all
till the leader of the playground sent out a call
Dressed in his boots and his one gallon hat
he yelled “i’m the sheriff!” and that was that
Water cascaded from east to the west
and the soaked bandits gave up to the sheriff that was best.
So to supersoakers in playground there’s a new kid in town
armed with his water pistols he’ll take them all down.
Post Note: When all of this happened teachers were in a muddle
on a bright shiny day the playground was a puddle!
