'TWAS THE WEEK

BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS

By Josie Whitehead

'Twas the Week Before School Starts

Twas the week before school starts
       So prepare now to change,  
And wearing new clothing
      Will seem a bit strange!

‘Twas the end of the summer
       So what will I wear?
'A new uniform,'  said Mother,
      Which doesn’t seem fair.

In some other countries
     They wear other clothes:
Tee-shirts and trousers,
     Well I would suppose.

‘Twas the week before school starts
      So off to the shop
And Mother’s voice calls us:
    'Come on now, chop chop!'

The problem for children 
     Is just what you’ll know.
We never stay dormant
     But continue to grow.

So last year’s school clothing
     Now no longer fits,
So it’s off to the clothes shop
     To buy our school kits.

To waste summer’s sunshine
     Seems not really cool,
But it’s goodbye school holidays

      And hello to school.
