Graduation Day

They dress in red robes and sing to say goodbye.

Parents and teachers watch, clap and cry.

Diplomas are passed out. Speeches are given. Pictures are taken.

Then comes the lunch. Awkward conversation. More speeches. Skits. Speeches.

Tears. Sobbing tears of farewell.

One last song together. Goodbye teachers.

Retire to the classroom. One last look.

Goodbye school.
