The First Day of School
Aninditee, Age 11, Toronto, ON

Today is the day, the first day of school.
I have no new friends and I feel like a fool.

My teacher Mr. Greyhound is really strict and thin,
stands up on our classroom chair and announces our routine

First we have a spelling bee then English and dance
I hate spelling bees ‘cuz I don’t even stand a chance

Everyone gasps, as he names some more,
I just couldn’t wait till I got home!

I wait and I wait till the clock strikes 2,
I fiddle with my pencil ‘cuz I have nothing to do!

I hated the spelling bee ‘cuz there were lots of words I misspell,
But luckily I got saved by the home time bell.
