The Con

Although I'm small and only six

I know when I've been had,
I've found my teacher's playing tricks,
Just wait 'til I tell Dad!
We have to say the 'Thank You' prayer
Before we leave for home
And on the tables put our chairs,
A ritual not unknown.
I thought we did this for our Lord
To thank him for our day
But explanations were ignored
Why it was done this way.
I thought it was some holy law
To only say our prayers
When all was bare upon the floor
And we'd removed the chairs.
But then today I found the truth,
- it's not as it would seem -
For it allows, and I have proof,
Old Mrs Rudge to clean!
