This poem was inspired by the quote "A screaming song is good to know," by Maurice Sendak.

Sing a Screaming Song

When the class work gets too much,

the teacher decides to give a pop quiz,

and the school day never seems to end.

Then, when you finally do get home,

want to just lay down or play, but there is

lots of homework to do and tests to study for.

And this really makes you want to scream.

A screaming song is good to know

to scream sing and dance your annoyance out.

It is much better to scream a screaming song.

rather than just simply scream

a loud scream and throw a fit!
