Too Cool for School
This poem is inspired by my teenage daughter's current attitudes to her studying. Parents, you've heard it all before!
Don’t want to stand out and look absurd

Can’t you see I’m too cool for school!
Leave me alone, stop crowding my space

All you ever do is criticize
My marks aren’t that bad, I’m off to the pool
Don’t you know I’m too cool for school
Maths, languages, science, I don’t get it

Or go out shopping or just stay in bed
I’m a teenager, not halfway dead!
