ONOMATOPOEIA IN SCHOOL

a poem by Jacinta Ramayah, Malaysia - poetry writer, author, poet

Wardens whistle
rapping rules,
sniffling scholars
start school.

Plastic pops
students shushed,
teachers thwack
tables thud.

Time tick-tocks
bell brrings,
canteen clamour
coins clink.

Cups clatter,
crackers crunched,
saucers smashed
muffins munched

Boys burp
girls giggle,
grandfathers guffaw
children chuckle.

Squelchy shoes
squeaky sneakers,
sports-master snaps
mum mutters.

Bell buzzes
chairs crash,
pupils push
crowd-clash.

Horns honk,
chaotic clutter,
principal plonks
trainees titter.
