Today's Poetry Friday host is Heidi Mordhorst at The Juicy Little Universe.
Come visit all the posts and be incredibly inspired!
I've been trying to write more poems that might be considered for children, and this is one of them. I know that both teachers and those of you who are former students will understand, and chuckle, but will students?
Student G simply would not
bring assignments needed, was soon caught.
I asked, and G said with a smirk
I’ve just forgotten all my work.
The computer lost it, crashed; it’s gone!
My dog ate it; that’s my song.
While I glared and yelled, You can,
G just looked at me and ran
back to the classroom, grabbed his books
sent dirty looks.
G did the work, knew twas his fate,
that we’d relax till the next due date.
