So, what is a preposition?

I do not have a clue.

My teacher told me to look for it,

but I still don’t know what to do.

 

Should I look up or down?

Or in or out?

Outside or inside?

Should I look along, around, or across the floor?

Or, below, besides, or between the door?

 

Should I look over, off, or on

my teacher’s silly clothes?

I just wish the answer

would pop under  my nose.
 

Chorus

Inside, outside, up and down

outside, inside, all around

Don’t stop until

you’re face to face

with prepositions in time and space.

 

So, what is the answer

to this very perplexing task?

I finally got the nerve

to raise my hand and ask.

 

My teacher was mad.

Said I was almost out of  time.

I also had another problem.

I was almost out of rhymes.

 

But I still had a few that would last me 

until the time was done.

I might not know the answer,

but I might as well have fun. 
 

Chorus

Inside, outside, up and down

outside, inside, all around

Don’t stop until 

you’re face to face

with prepositions in time and space.

 

So, during his rambling,

that just went on and on.

I drew a picture of him

at the wrong end of a water gun.

 

The water it did splash him.

He acted like he just didn’t care.

Until it became apparent,

that he wet his underwear. 

 

He ran into the closet.

He said he would not come out

until we had the answer,

and of course we would have to shout.

 

Then I remembered something important

that would put a smile on his face.

I yelled out the answer.

“Prepositions show positions in time and space.”
 

Chorus

Inside, outside, up and down

outside, inside, all around

Don’t stop until 

you’re face to face

with prepositions in time and space.

 

My teacher he burst out the closet door,

and said that I was right.

I finally got the answer

He said that I was bright.

 

He covered his wet pants,

and quickly ran out the door.

I never thought my picture

would end up dripping upon the floor.
 

Chorus 

Inside, outside, up and down

outside, inside, all around

Don’t stop until 

you’re face to face

with prepositions in time and space
