Humans' Homework


If day by day
You have done what's right,
Done what has to be done,
Then I ask you to do
Everything wrong for a day;
Please do not clean your room,
Do not explain,
Do not say please;
Neither say thanks
And try not to forgive.
Only do it for a day,
So that you can see how it is.
Only do it once,
So that when you have kids
You can tell them soon:
' Honey, no one in life
Will ever be perfect,
Though humans' homework
Is to be wrong
And then understand '.
