Why do i hate my Homework?


Why do I hate my homework?
It is a pest like a brother
Or a sister of another
It is like a very boring book
Or like my mom’s disgusting cook
It is a creature of its own
The kind that makes me gag and moan

Why do I hate my homework?
I really hate my homework
It makes me want to go berserk
I don’t want to do my homework today
Nor tomorrow or the 25th of May
Homework is like poisonous snakes
Or the mystery meat my cafeteria makes

I rather listen to my Ipod
Then write an essay about Cape Cod
I rather spend my days staring at the sun
Then do my homework that needs to be done
I rather swim in a pool with a shark
Then learn fractions with my math teacher, Mr. Clark
And this is why I hate my homework

    Anthony, I like this, it is very funny and very well put together. You know it is not really poetical touse the lowercase when refering to yourself and it's a bit boring really.

    But this is great. The humour is warm and I'm glad that I'm an old man.

    All the best to you! (Report) Reply

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
