Excuses


I have a heart attack you guys!
Can't stand to hear all your lies,
Though I beat All, I shall say,
A list of excuses, will never decay:

I broke my knee,
Got stung by a bee,
Can't walk all the way.
I have a headache,
A sore throat,
Can't come with you today.

I ran and tripped,
On Ice I slipped,
I'm now in pain.
Don't know if I will come,
My shirt is filled with stains.

I lost my shoe,
I lost my watch,
I'm an astronaut.
Honestly I want to come,
I'm not as any stout.

I tore my lace,
I scratched my face,
It itches very badly.
Sincerely friends, I would have come,
I'm sorry I say sadly.

I'm washing now laundry,
Some whites and colored too,
Oh! Have to get my homework done!
Can't join you!

My dog ate the paper, Of homework and all
So I have to sit and rewrite,
I'm sorry, you gotta understand!
I love you with all my might!

Listen my friends,
Today I'm busy-
I've got an errand or two-
Honestly my fellow mates
I'd rather be with you.

I gotta go shopping,
Right after I'll come
I make a promise now!
Oh no, I forgot can't go now!

I would have come,
I wanna go,
But wanting now to sleep.
I'm turning into pumpkin
Into a dream state, deep.

I'm on the phone now,
After, I will come,
My friend commits some suicide
Can't meet I am numb.

Fought with mom, fought with dad
I wanna be alone
Would not like to hear the noise!
I'd rather sleep until next dawn!

Oh! Wait I'll get a smoke,
Heavens, no! I cough and choke!
From my lungs I start to bleed
Go without my I bid.

Don't want to moist my shoes and socks
Or else I will have slipped on rocks,
I would have join you my lad,
But I'd rather not be in mud!

Here I am, down in a few!
Oh my gosh, the air filled with dew!
Have hard time breathing…
And I'll catch a flu!

Ho, I have to work all day,
Have many debts to pay
Can't meet you guys, not today,
But I'll be in touch! So don't look grey.

I was in a plane
And heights make me insae
So I don't wanna go
It is for your own benefit
So don't get mad
Just get it! it is so!

There's a list for any cause
You don’t have to be the 'wizard of oz'
Just from here you may choose
What will be your next excuse,
But my fellows beware!
Use the excuse with extra care…

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –
“Egg thou art, and egg remainest”
Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
