Coco Tuesday

A day late, granted, but I'm now busier on Tuesday nights, so that's how it'll be, I guess.
Today, Wednesday, was the 100th day of school.

They've been in school 100 days.
Today they count 100 ways.
By ones, by twos, by fives, by tens;
all the way up
and back again.

Their counting's loud and energetic.
For one the counting was emetic.

Perhaps for him it did recall
the beers that once were on the wall
and through some quite precocious thinking
he projectiled ahead
to nights of drinking.

I think you're going to have to explain the rhyme (as good as it is) to those who don't know what actually happened...

All right, all right.
A kid threw up.
On another kid.
In class.
