Well, another year has passed us by
And what a year it's been
Not like any thought it would be
When we were starting in.
It's been a year to be remembered
By all who lived the time
There's covid, ice and winter chill
But we all survived and seem quite fine.
Forever, you will all remember
And will be known for as well
As the class that survived and maybe even thrived
During this little taste of hell.
But we all made it and we're ready
To say our last good-bye
All will say, "we'll keep in touch"
But know deep down that's a lie.
So savor your last times together
And maybe laugh a little, too
All this is meant to be in fun
But, of course, too much of it is true.
But know that I do love thisclass
And wll miss so many, as I've said,
So do stop by a time or two
During your rush to life ahead.
This class will long be remembered
For all you've done and all you've been
For good times and some not so good
For when you'd lose and when you'd win.
Lots of drama this special year
Lots of learning, lots of dumbing
Lots of things to hold our attention
Lots of shots done at Homecoming.
Halm is known for many things
And will be remembered for a lot
Not the least is answering every question
Whether he knows the answer or not.
He's tried for almost every girt
Or so it would sure seem
And, in doing so, he's struck out
More times than our baseball team.
He and Erica did have a fling
Even Danae for bit
But when he couldn't keep them his own age
He moved on to Noelle - guess she was all he could get.
Halm got an offer the other day
Maybe the best he'll ever get
From the Sarah Desert...they don't want him -
They just want his sweat.
We think we've discovered what makes Hayden sweat
And we'll try to get it banned
He only sweats when he sees Darnell headed toward him
With a razor in his hand.
Brandon used to like Tanna, it is said
But it got pretty grim
Ended when he took her out to eat and tried to steal her french fry
And she bared her teeth and growled at him.
Brandon went with Shaelyn to Homecoming one time
Guess that went on apace
'course that was back in time
When he could actually see her face.
Wenger has latched onto Pryor
That's certainly a fact.
At least it's somewhat better than...
Last summer with Brandon Black.
Danae may be the only one someday
To have an an answer when recalling strife
And asked if there ever was
A "Black Period" in her life.
She even had flings with Blake
And Mikey in her time
After those two in her past
Pryor must look real fine.
She does have a track record 'round these parts
At least seems to be her trends
She seems to get her kicks out of
Trying to steal other girl's boyfriends.
Jase drooled over Erica for quite some time
Not a pretty sight
But, alas, they broke up for sure
Things just didn't seem quite right.
There seemed a time with Nina dear
But that didn't seem to last
But Nina got some homework done
So, it wasn't a total pass.
So Jase is back to bachelor days
Not pining for what's gone
He'll just spend another day
Leading Jessi on.
But that seems to be Jase's way to be
Way he gets his joys
Seems to be to chase after girls
Dating other boys.
Rumor has he even tried
To have someone write his speech
As if do something that difficult
Was not within his reach.
First Nina's her and then she's gone
Then she's back for daily grind
Which boy she's with for this particular day
Well...that might be hard to find.
She started out with Blaine so true
Led him around like a puppy dog
Lasted longer than any thought it would
But, now filed in her "has been" log.
So, on to Jase our Nina went
Poor boy never had a chance
Only question was: was she interested in him doing her homework
Or in having a true romance.
But, we guess Nina's free again
At least it seemed at prom
Seemed to hover over every boy
And even grabbed a homeless man walking by when things got too calm.
Erica was with Jase for quite some time
But, alas, that was not to be
So she latched on to the first boy she could find
Who looked at her long and hard....and ran off and joined the army.
But no big problem for our Erica
At least from our viewpoint
Fathfullness to her current boyfriend
Has never been her strongest point.
She even dated Blaine for awhile
Before letting Nina take his hand
So, she's tried a few boys in her time
Just never found one she could land.
But Erica's a good student and certainly
Is nobody's fool.
She does well...except on days she and Nina
Are too hung over to drive to school.
Shaylen's ranked at the top of all
No one matched her gpa
Nor her record of wearing 13 masks
At the same time, on the same day.
Can't wait for her wedding day
"Kiss the bride", the pastor tips
Poor groom, it'll take him half an hour
Just to find her lips.
Should you ever see Shaylen screaming down the hall
Don't dare try to save her
It's probably just that she got a 99
On her latest paper.
But, Shaylen's on top of things, or so we think
But there are times she is a bit squirrely
Last week she ask what the first scripture would be for next year
So she could be sure and say it early.
Matt likes to stay around
And play basketball at Lion Time
And trample spirits of little Freshmen boys
Just to show he can...and that's fine.
We won't say he has a temper
But at times he does and more
Last week he got mad and stomped a June Bug
Just for crawling 'cross the floor.
He began looking for a girl
Found one and seems quite pleased
Actually, he just started through the alphabet
But only knows to "Dee's"
Morquecho growls at everybody
Her attitude is pretty sorry
But, pay no mind, just understand
She's still pining away for Arnie.
But Tanna helped her team to another
State title to be fair
All her dreams answered except for one
If only Arnie could have been there.
Dakota-what can we really say
That isn't widely known
Especially that he appears to be
In love with Post Malone.
He's another non driver here
But before you feel too low
Just think what it might be like
If he were on the road.
Test days are always a challenge
Try as I might to gage
If Dakota is going to finish his test
Before I die of old age.
Darnell has many talents 'tis a fact
Never know which one he pegs
But most troublesome might just be
When he decided to shave his legs.
Prom came around and he shaved his sticks
Was he looking for romance
Or just getting ready for a date
To a gay pride dance?
Savion has no driver's license
So, hard to pick up dates these days
So, maybe we can all sympathize...
Why he just sits home and shaves.
But, some day he'll be a great artist
Know that is you care
He may even advance to shaving
Portraits in his leg hair.
He did date Noelle for awhile
But broke up in spitte of all his begs
Seems in spite of all he could do
She wouldn't let him shave her legs.
Darnell heads to Walmart every day
As soon as he's out of school
We know why, it's because he thinks being a Walmart greeter
Would be so very, very cool.
Dylan had a fling with Nina
But he's not unique there, for sure
Now he's got to find aother
Not any pickier than her.
His boyish smile and wavy hair
Should draw girls as they pass
But, alas, they seem to get to know him
And run away real fast.
He's go after Erica as his girl
That's pretty much for sure
If it weren't for the fact he'd have to carry
A step ladder around to kiss her.
Class has begun and teaching's going good -
Well after 9 by the clock on the wall
When suddenly the door swings open...
Lauren has decided to join us after all.
Used to wonder where she was
To be late end after end
Found out she was at the daycare
Scouting for her next boyfriend.
The only thing that might pull her off
The little ones and all
Might be if Chris Evans got really desparate
And somehow gave her a call.
But she's a leader we all know
Why just this week she showed she had 'em
And let you all wear jeans to school...
Quite a surprise to Mrs. Adams.
Rumor has when prom night came
And announcements were heard and seen
She and Nina got together and cried
When they weren't named prom queen.
But, it was not to be this night
Never could have been seen
They're just lucky with his shaved legs
Savion didn't win both Prom King and Queen.
Most Likely To...
Spend 3 hours in Walmart searching for after shave for legs....Savion Darnell
Be standing at the altar on her wedding day, look at the groom and ask, "Now, what's your name again?"....Nina Novick
Still be thinkng about Arnie no matter who she marries...Tanna Morquecho
