When we got to the
dance Coco was so happy. We went in the door but then we saw a sign that said, “No
Then we thought
about what we could do.
We found a
solution, and it was to put disguises on.
Coco. We have to act natural.”
After we stretched
we went into the dance.
I hope no-one
knows its Coco.
Coco was the best
Is this like a
thing, cats are the best dancers?
Oh oh! Someone
Then the teacher
asked, “Are you ok? Are you allergic to anything!”
Then Coco ran out
the door as fast as she could.

not my sister’s room? “Ahh!”
She used all my money just on food WITHOUT TELLING ME! (she is going to jail)
Last morning when I woke up she put a spider on my face and I got so scared I screamed as loud as I could.

Celebrate good times come on!
Don’t try this at home people!
Run for your life!
We’re gonna crash!
Come on let’s get out of here!
I win! I win! I win! Oh! Oh!
I don’t know what I won.
Every like in the family is an old man saved from death.
Karma isn’t it!
Kids believe in Karma.
shiny blue topaz – lies buried
in the gravel
the sun’s rays stroke the surface
of the soft saffron water
a trickling waterfall
disguises the chiseled facets
of a hidden cave
at the margin of
a mesmerising blue

I used to feed my snake
in a separate feeding tank
but now I use the same tank.
I used to love fencing and I still do
I used to fly kites but now I fly drones.
When I fly my drone I can see what it sees
Our house looks very very very tiny.
Snake where did you get your pattern
with the different shapes and colours?
Where did you get your tongue?
What can you taste with that flicking tongue?
Is it fun sleeping all day?
Snakes are a living piece of art
I want to be a formula one driver
I want to go fast in a car
Through the day and night
Race on a track
Faster than Daniel Riccardo
Like a rocket
I want to rush like the wind
On a motorbike
Tilting very low
Knee almost touching the ground
Wearing a white helmet
Then rearing up like an angry horse
Like a lion
I want to go as fast as the speed of light
In a rocket
Shooting up high
Soaring in the sky
Rushing past the solar system
Like the Big Bang
What if you could
Run faster than the speed of sound?
You could make a lot of money off that
I wish I could do Rubric’s Cube
I wish I knew the Wi-Fi password
I wish I was a millionaire
I wish that people lived for 1000 years
I wish I could paint children’s faces
black and white
I wish I had a car
I wish that school didn’t exist
I wish I had Benny
he’s golden brown
I wish I had a pet
not a cat
not a bird
but a chimp
and bring to school
I wish I was the smartest boy
I used to have a dog
Now I don’t have one
