I Ain't Been to School

by Robert Pottle
I ain’t been to school,
not never before.
That’s all changin’ now
as I run through the door.

I drool on my worksheet
then chew on a book.
I eat off the floor
and growl at the cook.

I drink from the toilet.
I spill all the glue.
I lick my new teacher
and leak on her shoe.

The principal says that
I broke every rule.
I just learnt the reason
dogs can’t go to school.
