Why Do I Hate My Homework? - Poem by Anthony Pham

Why do I hate my homework?
It is a pest like a brother
Or a sister of another
It is like a very boring book
Or like my mom’s disgusting cook
It is a creature of its own
The kind that makes me gag and moan

Why do I hate my homework?
I really hate my homework
It makes me want to go berserk
I don’t want to do my homework today
Nor tomorrow or the 25th of May
Homework is like poisonous snakes
Or the mystery meat my cafeteria makes

I rather listen to my Ipod
Then write an essay about Cape Cod
I rather spend my days staring at the sun
Then do my homework that needs to be done
I rather swim in a pool with a shark
Then learn fractions with my math teacher, Mr. Clark
And this is why I hate my homework


By Anthony Pham & his little sister, Sharon

    Anthony, I like this, it is very funny and very well put together. You know it is not really poetical touse the lowercase when refering to yourself and it's a bit boring really.

    But this is great. The humour is warm and I'm glad that I'm an old man.

    All the best to you!
