The College Ball
Each year our schools combined to have, the Catholic College Ball,
As Sister Brigid smugly told all details she had spied.
His humble-pie of, "sorry, how-could-they, not our boys,
" Were words good Sister longed to hear, from Joey's hoi pollois.
But as the Sister floated back, on Cloud Nine to her girls,
Brother Matthew's calm exploded, like volcanic ash unfurls.
He called a school assembly, his wrath he would unleash,
At this unseem behaviour, how dare his trust they breach.
They all were there Grade Ones to Twelve, enough to cause a riot,
But knew full well, to be dead still, when Brother shouted, "Quiet!"
"How dare you boys disgrace us so, by smoking out in public,
You are supposed to be the best, and after all your Catholic."
Now Brother Matt was known to get, confused in front of school,
His words became at times reversed, which led to ridicule.
Like when the flash new Toilet Block, was opened in Term Three,
He told the world, there'd be no one, who's more relieved than he.
Or when he caught the Primary boys, in Toilet Block brand new,
Competing peeing up the walls and even out of view.
"Should this contest continue, and I can see the proof,
You'll leave me with no option, but to really hit the roof."
Remember that confectionery well known as columbines,
'Twas these that Brother had in mind in Science with Grade Nines.
"Those students who can tell me, what makes the moon to shine,
I promise that you each will get at least one concubine."
But for this nicotine brigade, he would no mercy show,
With Sister Brigid still in mind, he let both barrels go.
"For years your College Balls you've had, with music, dance and joy,
But I'll cut out your Balls if you, continue to annoy."
Well the Assembly near erupted, with giggle, smirk and glee,
But Brother Matt had no idea, why this response should be.
"Laugh and grin, but this discipline, for non-cooperation,
Could well have serious consequence, for a future generation."
