It’s Okay to Boo

Disks ping-pong across the floor
while Polar Bears dance on steel stilts
and the teacher in a JFK suit
tells his failing pupils all is well.  All is well.

All isn’t well in the theatre, though.
All is tight, worried and sad.  Foreboding.
The clock’s ticks annoy the voyeurs
who stand in nervous circles, smoking.

The patient may not have the year.
The doctors may not have the room.
The semester may be out of quarters
before the class learns to add and subtract.
