My folks will sure be angry when I tell them the truth. In fact, they’ll be so angry, I know they’ll hit the roof. They’ll disconnect my TV because I broke their trust. I wish I could avoid this, but tell them — now I must! Last night, just after supper, my dad said, “GuessContinue reading “My Secret”
“Turtle in My Tub” There’s a turtle in my tub – don’t know who put it there, but that turtle in my tub, sure gave me quite a scare. Perhaps I should be happy. Perhaps I’ve had a break, cause whoever put that turtle there might also own a snake!
I wish I owned a monkey; I know that we’d have fun. He’d be just like a brother; my folks could call him “Son”. We’d watch TV together; my homework we’d both do.

Nancy Jenkins always lies; Mary Saunders always cries. Billy Grover is a cheat; Andrew Sage has great, big feet. Sally Green thinks she’s just great; Doug Frey’s always running late. Danny Day, well, he’s too tall; Alice Johnson’s just too small. Larry Prichard sucks his thumb; Jackie Thompson’s really dumb. Looking round it’s plain toContinue reading “The Others and Me”
Too lazy to dispose of gum into the garbage bin, I’ve swallowed each and every hunk; I thought it was no sin. Now, today, I’ve heard some news that has me quite upset.
