My Teacher Took My iPod
My teacher took my iPod.
She said she had a rule;
I couldn't bring it into class
or even to the school.
She said she would return it;
I'd have it back that day.
But then she tried my headphones on
and gave a click on Play.
She looked a little startled,
but after just a while
she made sure we were occupied
and cracked a little smile.
Her body started swaying.
Her toes began to tap.
She started grooving in her seat
and rocking to the rap.
My teacher changed her mind.
She thinks it's now okay
to bring my iPod into class.
She takes it every day.
