Shel Silverstein

I hate homework

Homework, oh homework I hate you, you stink.

I wish I could wash you away in the sink.

If only a bomb would explode you to bits,

homework oh homework you’re giving me fits.

I’d rather take baths with a man-eating shark,

or wrestle a lion alone in the dark.

Eat spinach and liver, pet ten porcupines,

than tackle the homework my teacher assigns.

Homework oh homework YOU’RE LAST ON MY LIST.

I simply don’t see why you even exist.

If you’d just disappear it would tickle me pink.
