Sometimes my brain just won't turn off and I was up most of the night. I dropped the sugar bowl and made myself a big mess to clean up, caught up on my online scrabble games, made this card and then this stupid poem started forming in my head. I hope you enjoy it as much as I would have enjoyed a little sleep!
I brought you an apple but please wash it first.
It fell out of my backpack and into the dirt.
The holes in the side are from my dog, Ralph.
It took me a while to get it out of his mouth.
Then on the school bus it fell on the floor,
a big kid kicked it right out of the door.
Another kid grabbed it to play 'monkey in the middle'.
They thought it was funny because I am so little.
And then a man teacher, as tall as can be
grabbed that red apple and tossed it to me.
I tried to clean it and get rid of the dirt.
See the big messy spot on my new favorite shirt?
After all that it's been through, I'm giving it to you.
I hope that the inside is not black and blue!
