VERBS

by LESEGO MAPHELEBA N., Age 12 , Grade 6, LAERSKOOL DUNNOTTAR, SELCOURT, GAUTENG SOUTH AFICA
Teacher: MRS MAKADE

A VERB IS THE WORST THING IN THE WORLD 
FOR ME TO LEARN ALRIGHT
AND WHEN THE TEACHER CALLS ON ME
I NEVER GET IT RIGHT

I TRY TO GIVE THE PARTS OF VERBS 
AND SAY SEE,SAW,SEEN
BUT WHENI GIV UP THE PARTS OF BE
I CAN'T SAY BEE,BEE,BEEN

IF I GIVE THE PARTS OF GO
AND SAY GO,WENT,GONE
IT DOESN'T HELP A BIT WITH GROW
I CAN'T SAY GROW,GRENT,GRONE

THE PARTS OF TAKE YOU'RE VERY SURE
ARE TAKE,TOOK AND TAKEN 
YET BAKE IS VERY WRONG
AS BAKE,BOOK AND BAKEN
