As I’m sitting in the classroom
With a back look on my face,

I am staring out the window

At the emptiness of space.

While the teacher drones, explaining
How to multiply a fraction,

My mind is rolling slowly

To a state of numb inaction.

Now my eyes are growing heavy
And my head begins to fall,
As I drift away to slumber and
Against the classroom wall.

I’m awakened by the teacher

As the loudly clears her throat.

It appears while I was napping
All the students took a vote.

I got way more votes than anyone,
And this is my reward:
All my classmates have elected me
The chairman of the bored.
