“I want to go to school.
Nursery kids are all too young.
I want to learn to read and write.
School will be more fun.”
“I’m really bored at pre-school.
Where all I do is play.
I need answers to my questions.
Wear a uniform each day.”
“Yay, finally it’s here!
The day I go to school.
It feels so good to get in line.
I’m looking smart and cool.”
Three days later…
“Done with school now.
I wish I could just play.
I have to sit still on the mat.
Do I really go each day?”
“I’m going back to nursery.
I know how to read and write.
I’m feeling very tired now.
It’s hard to be polite.”
A first lesson learned it seems.
Work gets harder. Life gets meaner.
And sadly, no you can’t go back.
Grass isn’t always greener.
