A Nation Called Frank

Every grade school class has a Frank.
Frank played a lot of pocket pool.
Frank’s dog always ate the homework.
Frank never brushed his teeth.
Every other student shook his or her
Head when it came to Frank and
These were grade school kids.
We had no idea how Frank was going
To graduate and go on to high school.
Frank did. We just shook our heads.
We lost track of Frank and we all went
to the same high school.
It has been years and years since I have
Seen Frank, but I saw him the other day.
Frank is now known as the United States
Of America and we, Frank’s classmates,
Are the other 183 nations who just shake
Our heads in disbelief even though there
Were only 30 students in our class besides
Frank.
