By Mr. Toft’s Grade 5 class
You must be kidding.
I’m terrible at writing them!
My arm is broken!
My dog ate my pencil.
I don’t like poetry.
I’ve never written a poem before.
There are scribbles all over my paper.
It will be a waste of trees.
I left my supplies at my house.
Time's up? Uh oh!
All I have is this dumb list of excuses.
You like it? Really? No kidding.
Thanks a lot. Would you like to see another one?
