All About Me

Car parts grow

                in my garden

And sometimes

                rats go there;

I have a big hole

                in my jumper

And nobody brushes

                my hair.


Nobody tells me to

                clean my teeth,

I’m never at school

on time,

I sometimes pinch sweets

                from the corner shop

(I’ll probably turn

to crime.)


I eat lots of chips

                and drink fizzy drink

I wear dirty trainers –

                Poo! Don’t they stink!


Nobody knows

                where I am

And nobody cares

                what I do,

But if I was loved

                and cherished

I’m sure I’d be just …

                like you.
