Roosters crowing children growing, got big plans but dirty pants, with kids to teach life is sweet!

Ode to a Copier

Xerox, Sharp, or HP made
Our worksheets you’d duplicate in spades
We’d send you documents galore
From our networked laptops on the first and second floor…

If you only knew how sweet it would be
To walk down the stairs to make a copy
Instead of saving, dragging, and dropping,
Then starting, driving, stopping, and parking
All for a few schedules, or lesson templates
That ten eager teachers earnestly await

Think of the cash it costs to collate
At the very last minute when your term paper’s already late
Now multiply again and again and again,
To count up the pennies we’ve spent on the same

What if the power were suddenly out?
What if the market had been shut down?
What would we do? We have midterms to scan!
We have to make dittos, they’re part of the plan –

A copier/printer’s the thing we need.
One that can work at breakneck speed.
We’ve opened a school and our first day is here
The last puzzle piece is a shiny Lanier!

Check in your checkbook and peruse your accounts
Maybe your billfold’s overweight by an ounce
If you can spare a few dollars it really would help

We here at Kopila, we’re asking you please
To donate a dollar, so we can copy with ease.
Just follow the link, it’s listed below

You can write “for a copier!”
Right there in the memo
And that way we’ll know just where the money should go!


We’re hard pressed to run a school without a way to efficiently print and copy information and teaching materials. Next to a utility vehicle, a copier/printer would be a dream come true. Please consider making a donation for this much needed school supply : )

Thanks and love in advance!
