I started on my homework,
but my pen ran out of ink.
My hamster ate my homework
My computer’s on the blink.
I tripped and dropped my homework
in the soup my mom was cooking.
My brother flushed it down the toilet
when I wasn’t looking.
My mother ran my homework
through the washer and the dryer.
An airplane crashed into our house.
My homework caught on fire.
Tornadoes blew my notes away.
Volcanoes rocked our town.
My books were taken hostage
by an evil killer clown.
I worked on these excuses
so darned long my teacher said,
“I think you’ll find it’s easier
to do the work instead.”
