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 '.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
