On that day everything went wrong,
I fell on the ground with a “BONG”!
I hurt my elbows and knees
And misplaced my cupboard keys.
I dreamt of a horrible ghost,
At breakfast I burnt my toast.
I couldn’t find my tie, I couldn’t find my shirt
And when I did find it, it was covered in dirt!
I came to know, when I heard the clock’s chime
That I had lost control of time.
It was past six fifteen,
O, How stupid I had been!
On that very day, I missed my bus
And then I made a pretty good fuss!
I just didn’t want to go to school,
But as a rule, I was called a fool!
When I got to school, it was then I realised
I had forgotten to do the work assigned!
In vain, I asked to be excused,
Obviously, I was refused!
I was badly given a whack on my back,
I thought it made the scale almost crack.
But that wasn’t the end, there was more, wait!
Between sobs, I cursed my fate!
My teacher classified good girls & bad girls,
And then she threw abuses in hurls!
When I was almost woebegone
She stopped by calling me a ‘moron’!
She asked me to go and sit in my place,
To tie my lace and wipe my face!
I sat on the chair with a sudden jerk
And quietly went on with my work.
During breaktime, I realised I was broke,
Now I couldn’t have a hot dog or a coke!
What is the use of a recess?
If you are stupid enough to be so careless!
Alas! I was back in my house,
But suddenly I felt as quiet as a mouse!
Then, I knew my parents weren’t at home
Perhaps, they had gone to Rome!
My mummy had left on the fridge a note,
“Will be back soon. Don’t worry,” to quote
Now, I’ll have to wait for mummy,
Till then how will I comfort my tummy?
I opened the fridge and found nothing,
My stomach wouldn’t stop groaning for anything!
“Give me some food”, I prayed to the Lord
I could even eat a bitter gourd!
I sat in front of the idiot box,
And felt as hungry as fox.
T.V wasn’t help, someone come to my rescue
I know you are wishing that this wasn’t true!
As a matter of fact, if you didn’t know
I will tell you the reason that is the cause of my foe!
Sitting with a belly that is completely empty,
The feeling is similar to that of cracked Humpty Dumpty!
Alas! My mummy came, o, how I blessed her
Just as I thought, she had gone to the grocer!
She bought me some lemonade and also a treat,
I just couldn’t believe it as I sat down to eat!
So, that’s it my friends, that is the end
After my lunch, I went straight down to bed!
Nothing happened more,
Nothing I could not have borne!
So, just in case your day turns bad,
Don’t make a long face and become sad!
You will see, that the best remedy,
Is to cheer up your minds and remember me!
