Say Please - Poem by Scarlett Treat

He Wouldn't!
I mean
He WOULD NOT
Give me my pencil!

He said
I must
Say Please!

And I,
Being the stubborn
Eight year old
That I was,
WOULD NOT!

And I didn't
Know how to say,
'When Pigs Fly! '
So.....
I never got
My pencil
From my brother! !

    Well, this brought back to fond memories about my family. The way I was when I was young. You did really good in this one. You have painted a picture for me to keep for all eternity. (Report) Reply
