A.—A is for Amy who has just turned thirteen,
A teenager at last, now tries out nicotine,
D—D is for Dolly, and now puberty strikes
With a mind of her own with so many dislikes.
O—O is for Oswald, most obnoxious at best,
Bone tired and quite lazy, just likes to rest,
L—L is for Lucy, always unlucky in love,
Her boyfriend’s says bye and gives her the shove.
E---E is for Edward, a motor bike’s on his list,
Out late every night & comes home quite p----d
S---S is for sorry, a word unknown by most teens,
Who are forever requesting a new pair of jeans.
C---C is for Catherine, always misunderstood,
Can’t boil cold water but would if she could,
E---E is for Earnest, his face covered in fuzz,
When first shave is over it gives him a buzz.
N---N is for Neville, his pimples quite a worry,
When he goes out, is the only time that he’ll hurry,
C---C is for Carol, much worried by her weight
But won’t listen to Mum and misses out on a date.
E---E is for everyone that goes through adolescence
But few there are now that show any slight innocence,
It’s a tough time for us all as they so easily offend
But they usually come through all right in the end.
