Miss Thirteen back in class, back in school
Maths and science she thinks are really cool
In all her subjects she’s very consistent
Current Affairs holds a current interest

Watching news for school is a new caper
Every day she sits down and reads the paper
Over breakfast we discuss the highlights
Every morning, all the news bites

Just this morning she read about North Korea
Where there was a huge outbreak of diarrhea
She read the headline and discovered
There was nine out of ten people who had suffered

Only half listening, my reply was unexpected
And apparently my humour not entirely accepted

“Nine out of ten people suffered through it?
Well I feel sorry for the one person who did enjoy it!”
