Sitting at a class today, as fazed out as I could be
I twirled my pen about a hundred times, while the professor talked on mindlessly.

I saw the fan whirling, and heard the birds chirping by;
The red desks there were twenty, and the chairs, twenty plus five.
And so it was, that many random thoughts, like these, I couldn't stop from coming to me,
and right then I knew, all day through, I would be gripped in a world of 'randomly'...
