I saw your face sour, but you should have seen it coming. You should have known before you said "the greatest complement you will ever receive as a poet is 'nice assonance!'" that there was some boy at the back with the maturity level of an eighth-grader who would whistle audibly as soon as you turned to write the definition of assonance on the board.
You should know you can't make those kinds of jokes with a body like that. Or you should learn to take your own advice.
