SCHOOL

IN GRAMMAR SCHOOL WE USE TO ASK EACH OTHER FOR SOME STUFF
(COOKIES, CANDY, ETC.). THEY WOULD REPLY THAT SOME MAKE YOU
DUMB, AND YOU WILL NEVER GET NONE.

Submitter comment: SHE TOLD THIS ITEM TO ME IN A SNAPPY MANNER. BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T HAVE
MUCH TO CONTRIBUTE AND I ASKED FOR TOO MUCH INFORMATION ABOUT HER.
I ASKED FOR THE ITEMS RIGHT BEFORE SHE WAS TO TAKE AN EXAM SO I
SUPPOSE THAT EXPLAINS HER ATTITUDE FOR NOT WANTING TO EXPLAIN THE
ITEM.
THIS ITEM IS A VERSE.
