Homework poem I have written and placed on http://missrumphiuseffect.blogspot.com

NOT AGAIN
©By Mary Nida Smith

Ah, Mom
Homework
Not again tonight.
I know,
You told me before
If I do all my homework
I’ll be smarter tomorrow.

Ah, Mom
I am already smart.
I don’t have time,
There is much
To do outside
Like exploring
And learning
About nature.

Ah, Mom
Can’t I have any fun?
Yes, Mom, I’ll hurry
I’ll do my homework
So, I’ll be smarter
Tomorrow.

Ah, Mom
When I grow up
I’ll never do homework.
I’ll play and explore
While I tell
My kids that story,
Do your homework
You’ll be smarter tomorrow.

Ah, Mom
Not again!

Hi Missy. Thank you. Creative - no. Just the true.

Translation please. Thank you.

But it is creative, it takes creative thinking to write a poem that flows and makes sense.

Again, Missy you are too kind.As you have noticed I spelled "true" instead of "truth" as it was suppose to be. Never write when you
are exhausted and I am still tired. I have to slow down and enjoy the rain and fog.
