My pencil broke.
See my point?
I didn't set out to

Give me a break
and lose that look.
It's library day;
I forgot my book.
My alarm slept in.
No time to brush.
My mom was in a mood.
I whacked my shin
trying to rush.
The bus driver was rude.
Okay, a little late,
but just my luck,
my zipper stuck.
I only could find one glove!
How 'bout a little love?

turned the wrong way
down a one-way street with
bird poop on its shoulder.
If you don't mind,
can we make a deal
and start this whole day over?
