I took my child to an 11+ tutor
Hoping she’d change him from iron into pewter.
The tutor shook her head and said with a sigh,
`Your son’s verbal ability just makes me cry.
Are you sure you want to continue the fight?
He really is trying with all of his might.
The examination date is much too near.
I won’t make a difference at all I fear.
Just go on line and download some work,
At least a few exercises won’t make him berserk.
As the date of the exam is getting quite near
Remove from your mind all thoughts of fear.
Don’t throw him into a bottomless pool,
Just dream of a place at a good modern school.’
