A disastrous day
I jumped out of bed on the wrong side

and bumped my nose on the wall.

I put my trousers on back to front

and fell down the stairs to the hall.


I opened the curtains to let in the sun,

but they let in a spider instead.

I looked up at the clock to ask it the time

and it fell down on my head.


I sat down to eat my breakfast

but forgot that I needed a chair.

I salted my corn flakes, I sugared my egg,

and emptied my spoon in my ear.


Our kitten jumped up on the table

and licked all the jam off my bread.

Then when I shouted, ‘You stupid cat!’

I was sent back up to bed.
