Colour of My Dreams
I'm a really rotten reader
the worst in all the class,
the sort of rotten reader
that makes you want to laugh.
I'm last in all the readin' tests,
my score's not on the page
and when I read to teacher
she gets in such a rage.
She says I cannot form my words
she says I can't build up
and that I don't know phonics
and don't know a c-a-t from k-u-p.
They say that I'm dyslexic
(that's a word they've just found out)
... but when I get some plasticine
I know what that's about.........
