Poem : Getting Dressed for School

I must have been too sleepy getting dressed for school today. I tried to tuck my shirt in, but I couldn’t make it stay.I also couldn’t tie my shoes. I fumbled with the laces.I snagged my scarf, and now some yarn is dangling from my braces. My socks are different colors, and my pants are inside out.My sweater from the hamper left me smelling like a trout.

I must have been too sleepy getting dressed for school today.

I tried to tuck my shirt in, but I couldn’t make it stay.
I also couldn’t tie my shoes. I fumbled with the laces.
I snagged my scarf, and now some yarn is dangling from my braces.

My socks are different colors, and my pants are inside out.
My sweater from the hamper left me smelling like a trout.

I thought I put a hat on to control my crazy hair.
The hat turned out to be a pair of purple underwear.

I spilled my breakfast on my clothes and headed into school.

My friends, of course, were all impressed.
I’d never looked so cool.

Ends
