Johny's mother knew that he did not have pain in his tummy !

Little Johny would not go to school

But what should he tell his mummy ?

He thought for a minute and then said

‘ Mum I have a pain in my tummy.’


His elder sister smiled and said

‘Johny, you are telling a lie,

Come on, be good, get up from bed

Give yourself a try.’


Johny hid his smile under the pillow,

His mother came near,

She said , after giving him a tickle ,

‘ You are O.K. now my dear.


Hurry , my love , don't be lazy,

You have to go to school ,

But if you choose to stay in bed

you will be a big fool .


Today is your dad’s birthday

All the nice food you will miss, ’

Johny jumped up said ‘ I am O.K ’

Hugged and gave mother a kiss.


Then he ran and kissed his daddy,

wished him a happy birthday,

Mummy watched him and she laughed,

Could not find things to say.


Quickly Johny got all ready,

finished his breakfast fast,

Smiling and holding sister’s hand

proceeded to school at last.
