"Show and Scold"
Suzy stood for show and tell
And raised an empty hand.
After sixty seconds passed
Teacher said, "Expand."
Suzy, stupefied, wondered
What could she do more?
So to save her presentation
She stared straight down at the floor.
Teacher wagged her finger
And said "Suzy, you have failed,"
Whereupon beleaguered Suzy
Took her seat kerplop! and wailed.
"Oh, ho!" cried crafty Teacher,
Who then heaped on praise galore.
Suzy, Teacher said,
Showed the class the perfect bore.
