9th Grade Excuses: Sijo IX

 

I nevah know, I wen forget, I lef ’em home, I no wuz hea

Wen you told us dis? Wat I spposed to do? Wat? Dis one? Fo realz?

You jokin’ me? I nevah understan, someone else wen take ’em.

 

I no like do ’em, I no can do ’em, I wen turn ’em in,

My maddah wen trow ’em away ’cause she was mad at me,

My maddah and faddah wen fight and I tink I no wuz home.

 

I nevah had pencil, I nevah had pepah, I wen lose ’em.

I wuz at one party, I had fo go church, I no can fine ’em.

I had chokes adda stuffs fo do, it stay at my addah house.

 

I nevah taht we had fo do ’em, and I nevah know how,

Miss, wen fall in da dog dish and wen get all wet and stink,

I going do ’em aftah, I going do ’em latahs, if can. Can?
