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 don’t like them–that I’m a big jerk.
I can’t remember the last time I went out
They all probably think I just lie about.
Enough with the shirking
it’s back to the working
I’d be able to do it all
if people stopped lurking.
