Letter from A Parent

Letter from A Parent :

I feel I ought to write

About Tom’s essay-work last night.

Of all the subjects you have set

This seemed the most unwise yet.

“Describe your family…" Tom wrote it.

So well, I just had to stop it.

Being handed in…so did my wife…

The details of our family life

Are not such a kind, alas,

That I should want them read in the class.

We did not wish the High School Staff

To read them for a lunch-hour-laugh.

We tore it out. I realise.

You may think what we did unwise –

But give it your consideration.

And please accept my explanation.

I trust you will not blame my son.

For, after all, the work was done.

Yours Truly,

Harold Honeybun
