There was a schoolteacher in hampshire
Who subjected his class to much torture
He was a bit manic
threw the kids in a panic
and that was not good for their future.

There once was a farmer who said
I like eating apples that are red
They are crisp and delicious
And really quite nutritious
He affirmed with a nod of his head.

In autumn the leaves are falling
To many folks that must be galling
But lets not be sad
Its just the leaves that are dead
And they make for some wonderful strolling

In the stadium I was a cheerin'
the other team we were a smearin'
then in came the rain
and washed out the game
poor football fans we were a tearin'

There once was a young football fan,
known to his best mates as Stan,
On Saturday's his dream
was to be cheering his team
and winning 2-0 was his plan !

Dang it, I'm too late, but here's my 1st attempt. (we'll just call it : novice category)

My schoolteacher was quite the fanatic,<O:p</O:p
and sometimes could be so dramatic.<O:p</O:p
We thought he was manic,<O:p</O:p
'cause he put us in a panic,<O:p</O:p
when he gave us time out in the attic. <O:p</O:p
<O:p</O:p
