Homework, Schoolwork
Practise GCSEs
When I try to do my Math
My brain starts to freeze.

Geography, History
Languages too
How to translate German
I still don’t have a clue.

Textiles, Graphics
Art is a bore
Taught shade and tone
But not how to draw.

The level of stupidity
When doing P.E
For girls, it’s gymnastics
But I say football’s for me.

When doing sports
I can’t even choose
So if I don’t do well
What’s there to lose?

Sorted into sets
Who’s smart or not
Always getting the teacher
Who seems to shout a lot.

Detentions after school
If you don’t behave in class
But if I didn’t do anything wrong
Sorry, I’ll pass.

    No interest in art or music, yet your words and rhythm are extremely artistic and could easily be adapted to music.
