When everyone is done with classwork
Is the time that I fear the most
When the teacher walks to my table
and she gives us the homework!
Sometimes it’s one page
Many times it’s three
But when she gives us a whole packet
I am not filled with glee
I ask my friends after school
What is the whole point?
They all just say
You have to do it! It’s the rule!
The next day I go into my classroom
And I ask my teacher
She just laughs and says
I know you will do it, I assume?
I now don’t know what to do
I ask my parents during dinner time
My father just says
Eat your chicken stew!
I come home from school and my mother asks me
Could you please do some housework?
You know what mother, I tell her.
I think I’ll do my homework!
