The School Board Meeting Fell On The Night Snow

(A villanelle inspired by an EMSB meeting)

The school board meeting fell on the night snow

returned with revenge upon this poet’s heart

In the name of learning I chose to go.

Step after step my boot sank below

The effort gave my cardio a start

The school board meeting fell on the night snow.

The big brass barrier I opened slow

My forearm muscle nearly tore apart

In the name of learning I chose to go.

In council chambers not a single chair no

not one for me. But I remained stalwart

The school board meeting fell on the night snow.

At question period I asked, Hello? Hello?

To get their attention I threw a dart

In the name of learning I chose to go.

When the Chair dodged the dart striking her pillow

I learned that to duck is pretty damn smart

The school board meeting fell on the night snow

In the name of learning I chose to go.
