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.
