Big News From School Today
Daniel went to school today
by David Taylor
and coming home had much to say
about what happened when
he played in the sand with all his friends.
Sam put sand in Mariam's hair,
perhaps Sam thought she wouldn't care
but Mariam was in tears
and teacher grabbed Sam by the ears
with words that is and not with hands,
well it only was a little sand,
and said to Sam he was unkind
must stay inside and could not play
with any sand for all that day.
Daniel said he was upset with him
and with Sam he would not stay
for putting sand in Mariam's hair
and thinking that she wouldn't care.
