Yesterday was "Poem in Your Pocket" day at school.  If any staff member stopped you and asked you for the poem in your pocket, they would reward you with an ABC Ticket (=school currency).  Ben checked out two poetry books in the library and scanned them thoroughly for the poem he loved that would take the least time and effort to copy just the right poem.  I'm thinking the school's plan worked.  Here is his poem (credit to Colin McNaughton):


Can you read it?

Cockroach sandwich
For my lunch,
Hate the taste
But love the crunch.

I love that boy.
