My “Life in a Week” Poem
October 30, 2011 § 2 Comments
One of our Reading Week tasks was to produce a poem about days in a week, inserted with the BM elements in it. This was what I posted onto my Language and Literature class blog.
It’s not easy to be a cikgu,
Oh that fact I knew!
I think I’ve caught the flu
Together with the Monday blue.
As I read the summary
of Tuesdays with Morrie,
I am reminded of life constantly;
Betapa indahnya hidup ini,
Especially when you have roti canai cecah kari!
Unspoken words keep drifting away
On this wordless Wednesday,
But darling, trust me,
There is so much more left for me to say.
Thursday child are bornt with a crown,
But they always like to fret and frown.
Any dispute will soon be through
as long as you stay calm,
So don’t you dare to make muka masam!
Again I find myself at mamak
The best usual thing on a Friday night,
When the clock strikes 12 I screamed “Alamak!”,
For now I have to take flight
And rush home with all my might.
I turn the radio on a little louder
when it is The Saturdays with their best song;
It made me smile and sing along,
And immediately make me wanna balik kampong!
I will never know
how easily the days go;
With Sunday Mirrors and a toast,
I sat down sambil minum Milo,
Outside the window I looked
And it suddenly just snowed.
And I wonder where it rhymed? Haha.
