bluebird of bitterness

At seven o’clock in the morning, Billy’s mother called to him, “Billy, get up — it’s time to get ready for school.”  

There was no answer. Billy’s mother called again, ”Billy, get up! It’s time to get ready for school!”  

Still there was no answer. Billy’s mother went to his room and shook him. 

“Billy! Get up and get ready for school!” 

“I’m not going to school, Mom,” said Billy. “All the kids hate me.”

“Doesn’t make any difference,” said his mother. “Get up and get ready for school!”

“But Mom, all the teachers hate me too.”

“I don’t care! Get up and get ready for school!”

“But Mom, why should I go to school when everyone there hates me?’

“Why? I’ll tell you why! Because you’re the principal!”
