Homework

My Homework?! Of COURSE I Did It!

…by Doktah McSteviePoo

I’m overcome with sorrow

 

I worked all night, a wondrous tome

Hey, maybe when I tripped and fell

The pages slipped into a well.

‘cause it was here when I left home.

 

Afterwards I can’t be sure

A killer dog, all fangs and fur

Leapt for my throat and tried to bite.

My homework slipped right out of sight.

 

I would have stopped if I had known

and let that dog chew to the bone.

My work was swell

Each part complete

You would have had a wondrous treat

I can’t believe you missed the chance

 

Perhaps it was the avalanche.

 

Snow was piled to the sky

And it let loose as I walked by

Stones and slush came crashing down

It must have wiped out half the town.

 

At least it scared that dog away.

The things I’ve had to face today!

 

But wait, I’m sure I had it when

I headed off to school again

Checking that the spelling’s right

When suddenly – a blinding light

Sizzling fire drove me back

Oh NO!!! An alien attack!

I ran down streets stained red with blood.

Thought I was safe, but then a flood!

 

A wall of water crashed over me

My homework, where? I couldn’t see.

I swept up on a sunny beach

My homework lay just out of reach.

I scooped it up and headed here

But then I felt a flash of fear

 

Some cannibals caught sight of me

They grabbed their pots.

I had to flee.

 

Arrows, lions… I dodged them all.

To turn my paper in on time

And show you all my work sublime

Perhaps it slipped out in the hall.

 

May I have until tomorrow?
