Back to School by Louise Gwinnett

First day back,
Got up late.
No time to eat,
That’ll have to wait.

Brand new shoes,
Shirt collar too tight.
Itchy trousers,
Tie not on right.

Eyes feel heavy,
Head feels light.
Should have gone to bed
Earlier last night.

Miss the bus,
Start to run.
Can’t go fast,
Bag weighs a ton.

Same old school,
Same old faces.
Same old lessons,
Same old places.

Same old cloakrooms,
Same old hall.
Same old pictures
On the wall.

Have a break,
Chat for a while.
School can still
Make me smile.

First day over,
Had some laughs.
Think I’m going
To like teaching maths!
