Escape The Question – #Poetry By Dan Leicht (D.e.e.L)

the bell rings
it’s 9AM in your head
you’re in Math class
you hate math
everyone is staring at you
“Well?” says the teacher
“What?”
“What’s the answer? Or were you asleep in class…”
you were asleep in bed
you try to wake up
but you can’t
not until you answer the question
it’s a simple math question
but you can’t use your phone to look up the answer
you don’t even have your phone on you
or anything for that matter
you jolt up
you’re in your bed again
your head pounding to the sound of your alarm
you sigh out of relief
“It was only a dream.”
and so you leave for work
leaving the question unanswered
leaving everyone in class staring
you go to work…
…happy to avoid the question
