At home I uncomfortably knot my tie
Wishing the day would zoom on by
I slip on my smart polished shoes
Really feeling the Monday Blues.
Maths is the first lesson today
I wish I was a million miles away
From algebra, fractions, division, the lot
My stomach is tying itself in a knot.
It’s break time, at last
But it seems to fly past
All good things in life do
Regrettably that’s true.
English is next, at least that’s better
Our task is to practice writing a letter
But what’s the point, it will never get sent
There are much better ways for my time to be spent.
Now it’s time for History
It never makes any sense to me
All those dates and wars and kings
Plus lots of other boring things.
Lunch now, phew!
I stand impatiently in the queue
To get my sausage, beans and mash
Then gobble it down in a flash.
Spellings are next
They get me really vexed
I go err, umm and emm
How d’you spell “abhorrent” again?
The final lesson’s Geography
Unfortunately for me
Maps are just so confusing
I end up slumped on my desk snoozing.
Hallelujah and hooray!
School is over for today!
As soon as I get through that door
I’m free and my life is mine once more.
