Sorry I’m late for school today
It wasn’t all my fault,
I was caught in a thunder storm
And hit by a lightning bolt.
A passing owl swooped down on me
And caught me by the vest,
He took me far into the woods
And dropped me in his nest.
A gust of wind came through the woods
And blew me from the tree,
It carried me a 100miles
And left me in the sea.
A kindly whale took pity on me
I jumped up on her back,
We swam together into shore
Where I rejoined my track.
My tale now goes from bad to worse
I was followed by the tide,
It washed me down a rabbit hole
That wasn’t very wide.
So once again I apologise
For not being here on time,
There’s nothing more that I can say, other than
I won’t be going that way again.
