Today I am a shell.
A shell, not in water. On land.
I am mad.
Mad because I got taken away from my
23rd birthday party
So now I am feeling blue
Feeling blue
And dry
Not wet but dry
Dry on a desk top
Yes, dry on a desk top
Dry on a desk top with my other friend
Who is so dry he is going to a gift shop
Where they play nothing but country music
Every minute
Every single minute.
by Jacob, 4th grade
