Oh it was such an embarrassment,
Do you know what falling at the gateway meant?
There were parents going in and out of the gate,
Not to forget the guards who stand there and wait,

One moment I was sashaying around in a flowing dress,
Next I was flat on the ground – a complete mess,

All I could think was the eyes peering at me,
I was so embarrassed I wanted to flee,
More than the pain tugging at my knee,
I wanted the ground to part and engulf me
