The eroding rubbers under my bare feet,
Lead as shiny as silver,
The pencil trees shone in the gloomy light.
Suddenly, it was morning again.
Lime-coloured slimy frogs
And oozing from the castle turrets.
A huge magma door
With a luscious green emerald knocker.
Colossal eagles with rulers for wings,
Sped over my head.
I knocked with the super cheap jewel knocker.
The door opened
And through the limelight
A voice said, 'You!'
Oh yeah, I'm back at school
And I'm laid in a pool of dribble,
Oh no! I'm in trouble.
