I finished my poem, and it was beautiful! It was about a mother duck and a father swan with three baby ducklings who were bitten to death by the father because they quacked too much. Luckily, Mr Keesing took the joke the right way. He read the poem to the class, adding his own comments, and to several other classes as well. Since then I’ve been allowed to talk and haven’t been assigned any extra homework. On the contrary, Mr Keesing’s always making jokes these days.
Thankfully, Anne's third assignment turned out fantastic. Of the three assignments she had written, her third one was the most successful. It was a humorous poem that told the tale of three ducklings that were bit by their father duck because of their noisy nature.
Thankfully, Mr. Keesing did not take the poem seriously and started to read it aloud to Anne's class while adding his own comments. Additionally, he read the poem to other classes as well. Mr. Keesing did stop punishing her, and Anne was then free to speak without receiving any punishment. But after that, Mr. Keesing allegedly began making jokes, hinting that he had grown friendly towards his pupils.
