‘Twas the night before school starts,
And all through the city,
Parents were filled with joy.
They were downright giddy. 

Children huddled in beds,
Many shed a tear.
Thoughts of returning to school
Filled them with fear.
 
All around the city,
Parents said what they love to say;
“Better get to bed now.
Tomorrow’s a school day!”

Going to school, like eating spinach for most, is a bogey man. I wonder if we'll ever be able to make it interesting enough and challenging enough, to make it more worthwhile for youngsters.
