What to Remember in School

Forget that two times four is eight.
Forget the name of every state.
Forget the answers on the test.
Forget which way is east or west.

Forget the myths of ancient Rome.
Forget to bring your books from home.
Forget the words you learned to spell.
Forget to hear the recess bell.

Forget your homeroom teacher's name.
Forget the after-school game.
Forget which team's supposed to win.
Forget to turn your homework in.

Forget the distance to the moon.
Forget how many days in June.
Forget the capital of France.
But don't forget to wear your pants!
