    English Morning Talks Poetry Worksheet: Round 4, Poem 3

    WHEN I GROW UP

    When I grow up

    I think Ill be

    A business-man

    From The Territory.

    Ill wear a large gold Rolex watch, And own, of course, a mobile phone. I’ll drive around in a luxury car, And when I want to, work from home.

Ill own a lot of property,

    And purchase lots and lots of shares. Ill aim to be incredibly rich; One of Hong Kongs millionaires.

    I’ll travel round and round the world, Staying in the best hotels.

    Ill always eat a business lunch, And speak of what my company sells.

But wait a minute.

    I’ll think once more.

    I’ll not decide until Im sure.

    I’ll soon start losing all my hair, And am sure to have a large pot-belly. I’ll have to stay out late at night, And not have time to watch the telly.

I’ll not eat a balanced diet,

    And exercise will lack,

    I’ll drink a lot of coffee,

    And even have it black!

So the more I think,

    The more Im sure

    Theres nothing wrong with being poor!
