Why I Hate Homework

Posted August 27, 2009 & filed under Notebook.

Homework makes me
sick to my stomach.
It makes my head ache
and my eyes feel tired.
Homework is like being
buried alive or drowning
in nouns, division, and
rocks and minerals.
When I have to do
homework, I wish I
were playing video
games. Homework
is something I will grow
out of some day. I
can’t wait!
