My Doggy Ate My Essay

My doggy ate my essay.
He picked up all my mail.
He cleaned my dirty closet
and dusted with his tail.

He straightened out my posters
and swept my wooden floor.
My parents almost fainted
when he fixed my bedroom door.

I did not try to stop him.
He made my windows shine.
My room looked like a palace,
and my dresser smelled like pine.

He fluffed up every pillow.
He folded all my clothes.
He even cleaned my fish tank
with a toothbrush and a hose.

I thought it was amazing
to see him use a broom.
I’m glad he ate my essay
on “How to Clean My Room.”

From Galaxy Pizza and Meteor Pie: And Other School Poems that Are Out of this World

In Galaxy Pizza and Meteor Pie, you’ll run into a teacher who mixes up her words, one who gives detention to water fountains and bus tires, and one who forgets how to act around students. You’ll meet unusual lunch ladies who serve Candy Cane Craters, Milky Way Shakes, and fresh Corn on the Comet. There’s also a dog that enjoys doing chores, a parent who gets out of hand at a parent-teacher conference, and a principal who lets kids take over the school on Opposite Day. Pam Catapano brings each poem to life with her colorful characters, brilliant imagination, and delightful illustrations.
