Surfer's poem: School rules

Don't miss the school bus, you'll be late, that's a habit teachers generally, don't appreciate, writes Jasmeet. Your contribution.

Do not oversleep and miss the school bus,
You'll be late.
That's a habit teachers generally
Don't appreciate.
Never tell your friends at school
That you still wet your bed.
They are sure to tease you,
And you'll wish that you were dead.

Never call your teacher a name
When she's not near you.
Teachers' ears are excellent,
So they can always hear you.

Do not read a textbook when your hands
Aren't clean-it's tricky
To separate the pages when the pages
Get real sticky.
When you go out for a team
It's always wise to practice.
When you are a substitute,
The bench can feel like cactus.

Do not copy homework from a friend
Who is a dummy?
If you do, I'm sure that you
Will get a grade that's crummy.And if your report card's bad,
Don't blame it on your buddy.
Kiss up to your parents quick,
Or they might make you study

Jasmeet, Kalka Public School
