Wet pants

In lesson 1 today at school
The bald one came
With beady eyes
And barked a bit
And told us lies
About the universe at
And how the milk of human kindness
Flowed in ribbons through the void
And how black holes
Could suck the heat
From all the suns and leave us cold
Just like we were before
He came along
And Jerry wet his pants.
I nearly died of shame for him
And every other kid who ever cried in fright.
