My Dog Ate It
The excuses they are so varied,
Why one’s homework is never done.
On Mondays it’s easy to say:
“On the weekend - we took a vacation.”
Teacher said you had enough time
“But my puppy had run away.
We looked for him into the night.
My homework I had to delay.”
“It’s not that I hate all the homework.
There’s so much, I can’t get it all done.
Just too much going on in my day.
And homework’s never much fun.”
"Now I do my homework on line
This makes it more fun and easy
But I find it is still sometimes late,
Or eaten by my Cyber dog, you see."
