Last Day of Summer

It's here once again,
And it's always a bummer. 
The saddest day ever—
The last day of summer. 
Goodbye pie at midnight
With video games,
Hello loud alarm clock
And learning new names. 
So long, holey t-shirts
And mismatching shoes. 
Hello tucked-and-buttoned
In sensible hues. 
Farewell lying out in the
Hot summer sun. 
Hello, pile of homework
I haven't begun.
Oh, next summer's fun
Is so far out of reach. 
In just a few hours,
I have to go teach!
