Did You Know? Poem by Anandita Bhalerao

Did you know? I'm the best swimmer in school,
Except for the 16 times I almost drowned in the pool.

Did you know? In my races I'm very fast,
I don't understand how I always come last!

Did you know? I have even written a song,
Some people call only 11 pages and 13 lines long!

Did you know? I've come first in class,
But if you're not counting backwards than I've come last.

Did you know? I love reading books,
But my friends say 'It is all about the looks.'

Someone asked me, 'Why do you call yourself 'the king'? '
I answered, 'Didn't you know? I'm the best at everything! '
