Playing Hooky

by Linda Schwartz • Pizzazz Learning


I’m staying home from school today,

I’m feeling rather lazy,

besides I find the kids at school

drive me completely crazy.


They taunt me and they tease me,

they laugh and call me names,

and totally ignore me

when they are playing games.


I’ll stay in bed at home today

and watch a t.v. feature,

and munch on buttered popcorn–

they’ll never miss their teacher.
