Fame

My best friend has a broken hand

from falling off a slide.

The poor kid was in awful pain

and screamed and yelled and cried.

But now he sits in Miss Clark’s class;

his cast bears every name.

Yes, falling off the slide has brought

that awkward kid some fame.

Miss Clark’s extra nice to him;

he doesn’t have to work,

because he broke his writing hand —

the lucky little jerk!

Cindy Andrews, who is cute,

now talks to him at lunch,

while I just sit and watch them talk

and on my sandwich — munch.

Last night I went a thousand times

just streaking down that slide,

but didn’t fall off and break my hand

no matter how I tried!
