School Work

It’s hard to think of all my work at school
When all I want to do is go and play.
But teacher has one simple little rule:
“Today’s work must be done, and done today!”
So back to adding numbers goes my hand,
My mind, however, wanders for a bit.
I think of all the games my friends have planned.
I wonder how much longer I can sit.
I try to focus like I know I should
On math or reading . . . what was it again?
If I could finish quickly then I would.
Is three from twelve the same as two from ten?
It’s hard to tell my brain to get it done
Because my feet keep telling me to run!
