The conniving kindergarten kid,
Presents many excuses valid,
A variety of 'aches', he loves to feign,
Oh! Going to school is such a pain.
Alas! Mummy is never convinced,
She knows her child is an actor accomplished.
He goes to school with a long face,
The hatred for school, he can hardly efface.
He enters the classroom and faces his teacher,
Oh! how he hates this frightful creature.
He moves to the back bench cautiously,
For his shoes aren't polished properly.
He loves to read and write,
The dance and drill classes are an absolute delight.
Alas! If only he could do things freely,
Everyday he would go to school willingly.
