                Homework

        My homework is really a big pain.

     All those thoughts, they won't stick in my brain

        And try though I might ,

        I'll be up all night.

     I'd much rather get hit by a train!

 

A Reflection on my Hairstyle-

That old English assignment so rare,

Would induce me to pull out my hair.

In my hands it did sit

Didnít hurt me a bit

But on top, well it just wasnít there.

 

Ode to our History Book-

Our history book, well itís quite a bore,

With its facts, maps and lessons galore.

These I cram in my brain

But the pressureís a strain

They might burst out and run on the floor.

(A 15th Cen. Irish Bonnacht and his Kerns)

     An Irish Blessing

May you always have...
Walls for the wind
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might
Desire.
