 ABSENT BRENT (Quatrains)

~Absent Brent~
(Quatrains in mixed rhyme/meter)


When somebody looks for him
they find that he's never there
He's the kid that people rarely see
Emptied, in the classroom they find his chair.

When the teachers run the list of names
They call out of course for Brent
But Brent he's always full of games
He just came and then just went.

Who knows! to someplace no one knows
So they miss him all the time
So often he's in the come and go
Or he wasn't there just in time.

When he's at home his parents call him
but Brent he's someplace else
He's either fighting with big Jim
Or bullying and scarying little Kim.

He hides anywhere and everywhere
But of his own shadow he's so scared
So he goes to his very secret place
And prays nobody will find him there.
