Distracted The Mother Said To Her Boy,

 

Distracted the mother said to her boy,

"Do you try to upset and perplex and annoy?

Now, give me four reasons - and don't play the fool-

Why you shouldn't get up and get ready for school."

 

Her son replied slowly, "Well, mother, you see,

I can't stand the teachers and they detest me,

And there isn't a boy or girl in the place

That I like or, in turn, that delights in my face."

 

"And I'll give you two reasons," she said, "why you ought

Get yourself off to school before you get caught;

Because, first, you are forty, and, next, you young fool.

It's your job to be there.

You’re the head of the school.
