I can’t be bothered

Asked my 11/12 year old students to think about when they are ill. Their words. My Verse. This poem style inspired by Michael Rosen.

I can’t be bothered
It’s Monday
I have to get up
I have to do the homework
I can’t be bothered
I have to go to school
Maths, English, Religion
Science, Spanish Language
I can’t be bothered
I’m bored
There are more important things to do
I don’t want to play with my sister
I can’t be bothered
to make my bed
to wash the dishes
to clean and set the table
I can’t be bothered
I wish I had a horse
I wish I was on the beach
If only the summer would arrive.
