At the Zoo
Elephants pour water out
I could watch
Animals all the time.

Egypt is a wonderful place,
You can even see pyramids from outer space.
The pyramids are built with tombs,
They have so many different rooms.
SOme Pharaohs had some gold,
Many had secrets never to be told.
There is a great river called the Nile,
It runs for four thousand, one hundred and sixty miles.
Egypt is famous for mummies,
Watch out they're taking organs out of your tummies.
Strange pictures on the wall,
They look like birds, cats and all.
Thay are called hieroglyphics,
And I think they look terrific.
SO, Egypt is a wonderful place,
With some of the earliest human race.

Goodbye Holy Cross
I'm in P.7 and I'm leaving very soon,
My last day will be in Summer, come the month of June.
And once school finishes and I walk out the blue gates,
I'll be losing some friends, but I'll gain some new mates.
I'll miss Mr Connolly and his sarcastic, humourous ways,
That would make us laugh even on the gloomiest of days.
I'll miss Mr McArevey, a Vice-Principal who was like your friend,
He loved the megaphone on Sport's Day, more than I can comprehend!!!
But I'm glad to be moving on to another school,
Having different subjects like Technology, Science and Drama will be cool.
A whole new uniform, new teachers and a bus to get you there,
Where I'll learn more and get a good job, I could even become a millionaire...
And to the buddies that go on to a different school,
We could meet up in Frames for a few games of pool.
But for Holy Cross Boys' and its pupils it's time to say goodbye,
And venture out on my own, just follow my dreams and reach for the sky...
