My Teacher Ate My Homework Poem by Kenn Nesbitt

My Teacher Ate My Homework

Rating: 5.0

My teacher ate my homework,
which I thought was rather odd.
He sniffed at it and smiled
with an approving sort of nod.

He took a little nibble—
it's unusual, but true—
then had a somewhat larger bite
and gave a thoughtful chew.

I think he must have liked it,
for he really went to town.
He gobbled it with gusto,
and he wolfed the whole thing down.

He licked off all his fingers,
gave a burp, and said, "You pass."
I guess that's how they grade you
when you're in a cooking class.

This is one of the best poems I've ever tasted! I used to be a teacher, so the title was irresistible to me. Best excuse I ever heard for not having the homework to turn in: My baby sister peed on it. I'm adding this poem to my favorites list. Please read my poems BUTTERFLY OF DEATH and THE GRAVEYARD. Thanks.
