Parody Assignment

I had a parody assignment for my Core I class this last week. I chose to imitate Shel Silverstein, as he is one of my absolute favorite authors. And I liked my edition of Homework Machine so much I thought I’d share it.

Homework Machine; I am a Homework Machine,
I have not seen my friends since 2013.
I just sit in my room and keep doing my work,
They think I donโ€™t like them–that Iโ€™m a big jerk.
I canโ€™t remember the last time I went out
They all probably think I just lie about.
Enough with the shirkingthe-homework-machine-e1268894617825
itโ€™s back to the working
Iโ€™d be able to do it all
if people stopped lurking.
