Tell me why your late today,
And please don't tell me it's okay,
And if you tell me you went to play,
I won't believe a word you say,

Because you're tardy again this week,
I'll have to assume your not a geek.
I really like you, yes I do,
But i will have to punish you.

So please to tell me why you late today,
And please don't say that it's okay.

Thanks! ~Owls :)

hmm. "So please to tell me why you late today", that line is awkward.(: Also, I didn't get that it was from a teacher before I read the description. In some parts it kind of sounds to me like it could be from a girlfriend to a boyfriend. But you have a good idea going here! Keep writing!(:
