Saturday morning wasn’t the same without you,
I still woke up early and watched our cartoons,
but you weren’t there to make us breakfast.
A year passed and I didn’t hear from you, I only saw
you one week in the summer, after that you never
Another year, then another and finally your graduation,
You were home
Although, it’s like you were a new person, a stranger
In my brother’s shoes, I feel like I lost you
Now not a word is spoken on Saturday mornings, but we
Beware of the vulture,
My parents would say,
The black bird brings death,
You’d best stay away
But how did the vultures,
Receive their ill fame?
They refuse to kill,
Or prey on live game.
We all hate the vultures,
Because they look vile,
With frightful feathers,
And devious smiles,
But why hate something,
For how it appears?
If people were vultures,
Would you point and sneer?

Because there are times,
We all feel like them,
Desperate to hide.

What would we do without Siri?
We would have to go through our own contacts list
dial a phone number.
We would have to type our own messages
and search on Safari ourselves.
What would we do without Siri?
Would we not be able to survive?
That’s not true.
What did people do before Siri?
They called their friends and family
on the wall.
Walking on the hot sand
Tingling my feet
Trot towards the ocean

Play in the water
While seashells massage my feet
I step in wet sand
Below the ocean waves
Soft, brown sand
Holding up the shells
Pick one up
Oh, how I love the beach!

My family is awesome
And I want a possum.
I do have four sisters
with high heels and blisters.
I also have two brothers
and of course they
don’t act like fathers
I am the 7th kid,
and being the littlest
is the best that I did
I also have a dad
that’s always glad
I do have a mom that’s
