I'm Not a Good Student

Everyday I sit in class
Listening to the teacher
Like a good student.
And then I go home and
Do my homework
Like a good student.
Next day I go to school
And sit in my class
Like a good student.
I go through my bookbag
And take out my binder
Like a good student.
I flip through the papers
And take out my homework
Like a good student.
When the box comes around
I drop in my homework
Like a good student.

But then weeks later
When I look online
I see that my homework
Is marked as "missing".
So I talk to my teacher
And ask if he maybe
Just hasn't finished grading.
But he says he has done so
And any assignment
Marked missing hasn't been
Turned in.

And now Teacher thinks that
I'm not a good student.
