I Wrote a Book

by Robert Pottle
I wrote a book at school today.
I wrote it in a minute.
You only need a second
to read everything that’s in it.
It doesn’t have a single word.
It has no illustrations.
My teacher tried to grade it,
which caused numerous frustrations.
The kids sure like the book I wrote.
They say it’s really cool.
The title of my blank-paged book
is “What I’ve Learned at School.”
