Back to School!

The Summer’s been a lot of fun
But Autumn term has now begun
A rotten trick on everyone
Today it’s back to school

The time to laze has gone away
Until the next school holiday
We’ll have to work instead of play
There is some sort of rule

The warmest days and clearest nights
The summers filled with strange delights
And if you’re lucky sexy sights
Especially round the pool

But now there’s work and nasty stuff
The early mornings can be tough
And nothing’s recompense enough
I’d say that isn’t cool

But never mind the darker side
It’s not as though the summer’s died
Some nice long evenings are supplied
For us to act the fool!

Author notes

Although to be honest, I haven’t been back to school for quite a little while …
