Dog in the playground:
Oh, no he don’t.
He’ll come with me,
You see if he won’t.

How many books have you written?
Have you been writing for years?
Where do you get all the paper?
Where do you get your ideas?

Today I’m not going to school,
I can’t face my lessons today,
problem is my Mum’s no fool,
she’s gonna make me go any way.

Give us your thoughts on this problem, please;
No one knows better than you.
