School Homework: Jobs I hated

I hated homework - what a bore;
And wanted time to play.
I’d tolerate that stuff at school,
But that was during day.

We didn’t have a dog or cat,
But Teacher didn’t know:
Those creatures chewed my homework up,
And I was full of woe.

I’d lost my bag, my homework too,
And wasn’t it a shame,
That all my work had been in vain.
My teacher knew my game…

One day I gave up fighting it -
I saw I was a dud -
And did my homework on the bus…
Then dropped it in the mud!

9th November, for Sara’s Jobs contest

    You tell a sad tale here. I miss my schooldays even though they weren't always that pleasant. Enjoyable work! Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish

    You've produced in me a chuckle, especially as I am dodging home work as I read. I'll even do the dishes before I return to the scenarios. Thanks for the smile mate.

    hahahah. I LOVE this one. Homework. That never would have even occurred to me to do it on that topic. IS this using that poulter measure Sara suggested. Did you know the contest can only be sonnet or poulter form? Anyway, a great poem!!

    Just the thought makes my heart sink. To be told that I had to think. Use my brain and not get pleasure. That's not how I like to spend my leisure. Peace. :)

    Oh Jack, That sounds so much like me. The tales I would tell. I had no time for that sill stuff.

    Excellent...and I love the humour! I hated school and teachers were not my best of friends! Funny, eh, when later on I had to spend a lifetime teaching!:) // paul
