Do Your Homework!

I was sitting on the couch reading a book
When Dad comes in and gives me that look
Have you finished your homework?
Do you have any more?
Come on son its half past four!
Can I please read for just a little bit more?
No! He says while he stomps his foot on the floor
Then I lost my cool and ran amok
Dad's jaw dropped open and he was in shock
Open your textbook and grab a pen
Start writing now before I count to ten!
I moaned and groaned and put up a good fight
But in the end i didnt want to be up all night.

Beautiful description of moon against the backdrop of traditional fables. Enjoyed reading it. Thanks.
So nicely written poem.
a nice change of pace- utterly lovely
Please help: did he write a poem with something like: 'Sometimes when I've had a few, I ask the world to step outside'? It sounds like it should be him. Can anyone identify it?
