Dogs

Dogs big, dogs small
Dogs short, dogs tall
Dogs fat, dogs thin
Dogs that make a dreadful din.

 

Dogs smooth, dogs hairy
Dogs friendly, dogs scary
Dogs brown, dogs white
Dogs that bark all through the night.

 

Dogs that run, dogs that walk
Dogs that make you think they’ll talk,
Dogs awake, dogs asleep
Dogs for the blind, dogs for the sheep.

 

The best of all the dogs I know
Goes with me everywhere I go.

                  My Little Sister

My little sister's got the loudest
scream in our school. She loves

screaming

when she falls over in the playground
and hurts herself you can hear her

screaming

five whole streets away. No one
except me can get her to stop

screaming

once she's started. My dad says it
sounds like a riot. So while she's

screaming

a teacher comes to fetch me
and I have to try to stop her

screaming

I love my little sister but
I just wish she was more

quiet.

                                        I wish

       I wish I was
An only child
No brothers and sisters
To drive me wild

 

        I wish I had
An older brother
And a sister
And another

 

       I hate it when
We have a fight
I'm always wrong
They're always right

 

        I hate it when
There's no one there
To play with me
To laugh, to share
