“I don’t want to go” he said from his bed
“I’d rather stay home and eat ice cream instead.
I can’t stand the teachers and the kids are as bad
And that’s without mentioning their mums and their dads.
The dinners are nasty. They make me feel sick.
And there’s always some joker with a plethora of tricks.
The playground’s unfriendly and inhabited by bullies
And they pick on me daily, which is a bit of a worry;
They all call me names and say they’re going to hurt me.
Oh, and the toilets are smelly and also quite dirty.
I think that I’ve learned all I’ll ever know
And nobody likes me so I am not going to go.”
His wife rolled her eyes as she stood at the door.
“But darling, you’re headmaster. That’s what you’re paid for!”
A Poem About School ~ written by Ms Moem.
One day they’ll write our epilogue
and I want it to say
that this pair stuck together
for all of their days.
They loved one another;
they made a great team,
they shared hopes and goals
and went after their dreams.
They weathered the storms,
made hay in the sun,
saw family and friends
and always had fun
but above all I hope
that when it comes to it
if asked to repeat time
we’d be happy to do it.
Epilogue is a wedding poem written by Ms Moem.

If you like this wedding poem, you may be interested in my book of Modern Wedding Poems which is available on Amazon and Waterstones.
Of course anyone is free to use my poems for their school presentations. However, sometimes being a writer can be a very isolated enterprise, so when you hear that your words have reached other people, and those literally on the other side of the world, it feels very rewarding.
And as ever, I am always honoured when people choose to use my poems in any public capacity.
If you would like to use my wedding poems or any of my other positive poems, then do let me know as I love hearing where my poems get to when I am not looking!
