My Saturday

Attention is never a good thing, as any other accident-prone klutz would agree. No one wants a spotlight when they’re likely to fall on their face.


I woke up early in the morning

Took a quick shower and grabbed

My violin and music sheets

Heading for my dad’s car in the driveway

When I noticed my dog just poo-ed on it


What a typical Saturday

And so I continued my way to class

And got reprimanded by my teacher

For not practising



What a typical Saturday

Coming back from class

I changed into my sports attire

And headed for school

For Sports Day

It was so incredibly hot

And I was so exhausted by the time I got back


What a typical Saturday

Changing into a fresh new tee

And a clean jeans shorts

I barely gulped down two mouthfuls of rice

And a horn was already blasting outside my house

Signaling tuition


What a typical Saturday

Oh, Saturday

Do I love thee?
