Poetry For Children: Homework ©

I'll do my homework tomorrow,
I'll complete it in a flash!
I'm going swimming now,
Ma! you should see me splash!

That night, when I was sleeping,
I saw a shadow loom;
It towered tall before me,
in a corner of my room.

I trembled uncontrollably,
I tried to shout for help;
but all that I could manage,
was a very squeaky yelp.

And so I made a dash for it,
and raced right up the stairs;
Jumping over footstools,
and toppling over chairs.

What utter pandemonium!
What terror and pure fright!
As that awful shadow chased me,
in the darkness of the night.

'I am your undone homework! '
It shouted in a shriek;
'You should've had me done,
at least before last week! '

I very nearly fainted,
So stupefied was I,
As my homework glared at me,
with a baleful, angry eye.

And all the time, it chased me,
it kept on growing bigger;
'You really should've finished me! '
It chided with a snigger.

It chased me round the garden,
through a misty, grey, wet fog;
That nasty, horrid homework,
It went and ate my dog!

I howled in helpless disbelief,
as it grabbed tight hold of me;
I tried to shake it off and woke,
to see it was Mummy...

I bounded right out of my bed,
and raced to my note books;
As Mum and Dad watched me,
with very perplexed looks.

I completed all my homework,
before breakfast that day;
Now I do my homework,
before it's time to play.
