The Crayons Are So Far Away by Little Plastic Stars published on 2011/07/06 05:37:27 +0000 Left, right, left, right, touch your nose. Alphabet backwards, who the hell knows? Don't ask me, I'm barely here. Black out talking about the beer. Now the teacher knows. And Mom is on the phone. The crayons are so far away. Rip the paper off and save it for a rainy day. Stand up straight and count to ten. Tap my shoes like the good witch said. Think of home in my own warm bed. Principal's gonna throw me in detention. Why am I so sad? I gotta pee so bad. I wanna hug my friends. I'm in the fourth grade but there's too much drama in this class.
