day eighteen

The Japanese tanka is a thirty-one-syllable poem, traditionally written in a single unbroken line. A form of waka, Japanese song or verse, tanka translates as "short song," and is better known in its five-line, 5/7/5/7/7 syllable count form. - See more at: http://www.poets.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/5793#sthash.zUmJmz1r.dpuf

Before vacation
Students don't want to do work
They think it started
Or that today should be fun
Playing games and hanging out.

Sounds like from my kids that is exactly what the day before break always is....I often wonder why they just don't start the break a day earlier
