BECAUSE THEY SMELL By Brandon & Tai, both age 9
What he wears:
his sister’s Hello Kitty shoes,
because he can’t find his.
What he plays with:
jump ropes and fire.
What he drinks:
7-up and Mentos.
What he makes:
guns, in case someone breaks in,
tables, to eat off of,
Pillow Pets, to sleep on,
and bowls and cups to eat out of.
What he hates:
gum, because it sticks to his hair,
because they smell.
Where he goes:
to bed on the roof of his car
because he likes the cold and the stars,
where he orders Happy Meals.
He gives the food to a homeless person and keeps the toys.
His favorite is Darth Vader
because he can choke people with his mind.
What he does not do:
Smoke in the shower,
because of the water,
and swim in the ocean,
because the sharks don’t like him anymore.
