There are a million, billion reasons

     Why their homework’s not been done,

But listed here are some of them

    And I think you’ll find them fun:

 

“My baby brother tore it up

     And ate it for his tea.”

“Our puppy came and sniffed at it,

     Then used it for a wee.”

 

“I left it in the house somewhere,

    But where, I had forgotten.

Dad, thinking it was toilet paper,

    Used it on his bottom.”

 

“It got mixed with the washing,

     Then went through the machine,

But look!  We saved the paper

    And it came out really clean!”

 

“I prefer to do my homework  

      In the cemetery at night - b u t

A ghost came up and scared me

    And I dropped it in my fright.”

 

“My psychiatrist told me yesterday

     That it’s not good for the brain,

So I quickly tore my homework up

     And chucked it down the drain.”

 

The reasons why it’s not been done

     Can really be absurd.

Now teacher where’s your thinking cap?

     Get ready with your words!

 

So, what funny excuses can you make?
