The Hard Way
This kid will go to all lengths not to do his homework!
I’ve got a rabbit’s foot and a four leaf clover. A lucky penny and a troll named Dover.
I’ve crossed my fingers, I’ve wished on stars. And for extra safe measures, I’ve wished on Mars.
I’ve avoided all ladders and black cats as well. Even went to a witch for a fifty cent spell.
Now I’m armed and I’m ready to do my best. Next time I’ll just study for my history test.
