I Woke up this Morning by Kenn Nesbitt
I woke up this morning.
I climbed out of bed.
I put on my clothes
and a hat on my head.

I went to the kitchen
to look for some food.
I let out a yawn,
then I sleepily chewed.

I picked up my books
and my lunch and a snack
and managed to stuff it
all into my pack.

I walked out the front door
and wandered to school,
and, wow, did I feel like
the world’s biggest fool.

The lights were all off
and the doors were all locked,
and I was embarrassed;
a little bit shocked.

I looked at my watch
and, indeed, it was eight.
But I’d overslept.
I was twelve hours late.
