T’was the night before school started
when all through the town,
the parents were cheering
it was a riotous sound.
By eight the kids were washed
and tucked into bed,
when memories of homework
filled them with dread.
New pencils, new folders, new notebooks too,
New teachers, new friends- their anxiety grew.
The parents just giggled when they learned of this fright.
And shouted upstairs-
GO TO BED- IT’S A SCHOOL NIGHT!!
