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

The waves gallop.
We are surfing on white horses.
Glowing beautiful green and blue water.
The waves get smaller.
They come closer to the sand.
The white horses fade away.
When I went to the zoo an emu stole my sandwich.
No-one messes with an Emu!
“What was that for!?” I said.
I felt like smacking him on the butt!
But no-one should steal a ladies sandwich!
I miss Piper so very much.
When I see blue I am reminded of Piper.
When I see brown it reminds me of Piper’s eyes.
White reminds me of Piper because I love her and Piper’s fur was white.
Piper was not just a pet she was a part of the family and that is why I miss Piper so very much.
She played a very big part in my life.
