Derek the Donkey

Derek was a donkey

but stubborn like a mule,

and he was determined

to go to public school.

I know that must sound crazy,

as crazy as can be.

Donkeys are not scholars —

most people would agree.

But Derek was not average.

That donkey had a brain!

He taught himself to talk and read,

but how — I can’t explain.

So Derek found a school

and pleaded with Miss Dunn,

who was the school’s principal

and placed him in grade one.

And Derek was successful

in each and every class,

because that donkey never

acted like an ass!
