A Normal Day for Me
Waking up and yawning
In the morning.
Jam and tea for breakfast,
Rations like a Muslim fast.
Trudging to school and heading the ragman
Seeing my best buddy, Brendan.
Hearing the hollow song of the bell,
A groan and then a painful yell.
Must have been the pen
Or Edward with his pecky wren.
Silently seated in the chilly classroom
No one daring to ask to go to the bathroom.
Break bell rings – nobody wanting to go.
One boy trips – we’re being hushed so,
End of break, everyone glad
The smoky air is just so bad.
More maths for everyone
A dumbest kid is not past one plus one.
Lunch bell goes – everyone happy
Powdered eggs are so tatty
Charlotte keeps getting the pen
Chelsea gets pecked by Edward’s wren.
