I Don'T Want To Go Into School - Poem by colin mcnaughton

I don't want to go into school today; Mum,
I don't feel like school work today.
Oh, don't make me go to school today, Mum
Oh, please let me stay home and play.

But you must go to school, my cherub, my lamb,
If you don't it will be a disaster,
How would they manage without you, my sweet,
After all you are the headmaster!

    Loved the three poems I have read. This was the first. I'm 73 years old and they made me want to read poetry again (Report)Reply
