Funny Poems 2

There’s a subject that’s been raised again

     And a decision has been made.

We’ve had our meetings at the school

     And talked a lot and prayed.

 

The problem, as I think you know,

    Is getting kids in school

And the Government’s now telling us

      That forcing them is cruel.

 

The cane, which we remember well -

     Which often would appear -

Has been abandoned long ago:

      It causes children fear.

 

Coaxing them just hasn’t worked.

    Exams? – Well, say no more!

We’ve exhausted every avenue

   To get them through our door.

 

We’ve tried to cut their working day

    And homework?  Now there’s none!

The problem is they say they’re bored

     Before their day’s begun.

 

There’s only one thing left to do

     To coax them out of bed:

You send your children out to work

    And we’ll teach you instead!
