The ‘Tails’ of Little Purple – Part 11

Frustrations Abound

by Night Blade*

Time went by, Time went along
And before you could flap your wings
It was the start of Little Purple’s last year
What a time was to be had.

Little Purple was no longer harassed by bullies now you see
Not that they felt any different, no way!
It was just that no-one had the time to spare
They were all too busy studying
Trying to pass their Dragon ABC’s.

Little Purple was way behind in F & R
But just to make up for that lack
He was way ahead in I, M & S,
About average you would say.

The pressure from the teachers was great you see
As they all wanted Little Purple to pass with flying colours
That sometimes he felt that no sleep was the rule
Just to get it all done.

“What a pother, bother & nuisance” exclaimed Little Purple
“I’ve no time to myself these days”
“I’m thinking of throwing it all in!”
“There’s got to be more to life than this!”

I’m sure we all felt like this in our last years at school. All the pressure to get the best marks we can and of course at the time we couldn’t see why! Do you think Little Purple will be doing the best he can? We’ll just have to wait and see won’t we!!!
