Miss Jones

Miss Jones

When I was small
Miss Jones told me off
for breaking the drum
during the music lesson. You
bashed it too hard, she said
and then she gave me
the triangle to hit instead. But gently
she said. I found I couldn't
break it
no matter how hard I tried.
Miss Jones beamed at me
folded her arms
and sighed with pride.
