I am a shark.
I live in the water.
I have no friends.
I don’t know why, but when I swim by to say hi, they all scream “Bye!”
I live near the cave where know dares to go.
When I go to the dentist, he doesn't even look at my teeth.
I live eat by myself.
I used to have some catfish, but the swam away when I was at work.
I work at the junkyard.
I sometimes stop and wonder.
“Why won’t anyone come near?”
And I remember I am a shark.

Your eyes can see it so brightly
It amazes you daily and nightly
Wonderful drawings hung up on a wall
Paint splattered on paper that is so very tall
Your ears will tingle with every little sound
So much that singing along is eventually bound
Instruments play and vocal pipes belt
You will feel a way that you have never felt
Sometimes it’s greater than one sense
Seeing and hearing nothing so intense
You hear their feet tap so solid on the ground
You see the moves in leaps and bounds
It’s hard to understand the way you will feel
But you need to know that this feeling is real
It seems like you are in a new place
A place full of grace
A place full of art
Deceiving; A Loop
Your eyes sometimes fool you,
You don’t see things for what the truly are,
Are you sure about what you see,
See even salt looks like sugar,
Sugar that should be so sweet,
Sweet enough to give you diseases,
Diseases only harmful towards you,
You who always tries to see the best in people,
People who may produce negativity,
Negativity enough to make energy,
Energy is what keeps you going,
Going through life’s ups and downs,
Downs that can only lead to ups,
Ups that should only lead to success,
Success that leads to the best you you can be

I like to go hunting
Hunting down in the woods
Woods is where you hunt
Hunt for deer
Deer are fast
Fast when they jump a fence
Fence is near the creek.
Creek has trees
Trees stands are for hunting deer
Deer like to eat corn
Corns is in the fields
Fields are were the bucks fight
Fight over does
Does have the best meat
Meat of a old buck is tough
Tough is sitting in the cold

The Big Game
I woke up around 10:00
To get ready for tonight.
The team we were to play was good,
We prepared for a fight.
We reached the field in the bus
To play on their home field.
Then we started warming up
Derek sat while his knee healed.
And then the game started
I was the first up to bat.
I hit a slow roller to first,
The kid who got me was really fat.
The next few innings went scoreless,
The game was really intense.
Then, a big guy on the other team
Hit one over the fence.
We came back two innings later,
With a double and a shot.
They replied with two doubles,
Making our faces hot.
It stayed the same ‘til the ninth inning,
When strikeouts didn’t make the cut.
Johnny was up and hit a single,
And Richard was hit in the butt.
Then I was up to do something,
I prepared to swing the bat.
I walked to the plate and glanced at coach,
He gave me a sign by touching his hat.
That sign meant to swing,
On the very next pitch;
I cocked my arms back and ready,
Aiming for the ditch.
The pitch came like a bullet,
I could tell it was a curve,
I swung the bat in a pristine arc,
While everyone observed.
The ball went ‘CRACK!’ off the bat,
And into the sky it zoomed,
It went flying over the fence,
Right to where I presumed.
I dropped the bat and ran the bases,
As everyone watching cheered,
I stepped on home plate,
Then to the dugout I veered.
After we finished packing up,
I went to where the ball had landed,
I picked it up, took it home,
And on it my name I branded.

Ode to Peanut Butter
Yum, peanut butter
So deliciously good
Chomp on the crunchy,
Or savor the smooth
It goes well with everything
You desire throughout your day
Try it on some waffles,
It’ll make you scream ‘hooray!’
When you run out,
Go get some more
I like Jif, it’s the best,
Get your PB from the store.
Enjoy the peanut butter
For the rest of your life
Order some now,
You’ll get a free spreading knife.

Bye Bye, Caroline
Here once lived Caroline,
She was a goody two shoes
They were playing hopscotch, she crossed the line
Now they play the Caroline blues.

There many strokes
Strokes that you need to learn
Learn and practice everyday
Everyday push yourself to be better
Better is how you improve
Improve gets you to the next level of competition
Competition is the race
Race, race to the end of the pool
Pool is filled with 25 meters of length and water
Water that is cool and smooth
Smooth as I glide to the wall
Wall is where I finish first
First is when I stand on the block
Block is where I get my medal
Medal is around my neck for winning
Winning feels great
High in the sky
There are clouds in the sky
The puffy clouds are white and big
The clouds are slow and spread out with the birds
Airplanes ride through lightning and thunder storm clouds
The lightning and thunder can be scary
The big birds can fly through the storms
The clear sky helps the birds
Clouds can be slow
Heading out to hunt
Putting on camouflage and orange
Soft cool air
Trees are everywhere with my stand
Heavy clothing are warm
Deer are 100 feet away
Feeling excited and nervous
Holding gun tight
Have to be silent and not moving
They are 25 feet away gun is up
I shot and hit the deer
The deer runs and then falls to the left and is gone
I go and get the deer and skin it

Here lies the body of Bob Ross
For everyone this is a very sad loss

I am a cat
I love to run around
I did cuddle a lot
I am super playful
My momma had 8 kitties
I only eat mice and opossum
I am more likely to love you than to hate you
I only belong to Jade
I love to hunt my food
I have white socks on my paws
I am all gray with my white socks
I am a boy
By: Levi Lloyd
Here lies Lee
Who really hated me
So I shot him.
Ha, got em

When you are fishing outside in is nice
Since you go outside it is bright
You can catch a big one if you try
It is really fun when it outside is full of light
It can be hard to reel the fish in if it if big
Your line will become tight
Once you get a few to eat
You can fry the fish for a delight
