The Hard Way

Funny poems for kids illustration The Hard Way
This kid will go to all lengths not to do his homework!
The Hard Way

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.
