Most Terrible Things
Ewan, Age 10
I looked out the window as sad as can be,
As the most terrible things were happening to me.
My dog had just died,
My friend had lied.
I fell out a window,
I broke my Nintendo.
I crashed my new car into a bar,
I threw my best ball way too far.
My house caught on fire,
I punctured my tire.
I knocked over my favorite vase,
Bees stung me a bunch in the face.
A bookshelf fell on me,
I lost my ability to see.
My favorite book fell into water,
But I did get to see a baby otter.
As you can see,
I’m as sad as can be.
