                           "BEETLE"

 

 

"See my pet Beetle," said small girl who has a curl.

"Get a skunk," said tall guy with a tattoo.

"Get a cat'" said women wearing a head scarf.

                 Beetle spit up a hairball.

"

"Yuck, get something loveable," said big sister with a scowl.

                           "HELP"

Do you see me? Look down, look all the way down.

 

 

I need a little help.

 

 

Will you be so bold, will you be so bold and put

your finger down into the dark black crack?

 

 

 

Aha! You did it, you did it! I'm on your finger!

 

 

 

I see you, I see that you are so cleaver, so clever and so bold!

 

 

 

                         Call me ROY G BIV.

 

 

 

Sunlight shows rainbow colors when it bounces and bends.

 

 

It made me crash, crash hard, right into a big fat raindrop.

 

 

 

                              Then splat!

 

 

 

                              Yes! Yes, you found a ray of sun!

              "WHEN I WAS FUNNY"

 

 

 

 

                     Longsleeved pants

 

 

 

 

                      Meat on a pen

 

 

 

 

                       Raining bats and hogs

 

 

 

 

                    Cowboard

                    

                               "HOLD ON"

                      There is lighting. There is thunder.

          There is a scary yellow light at the edge of this night.

                           Cassandra closed her eyes,

              held her breath and snatched Changeling up.

                          scared into happy

       "I still want to know what you are," giggled Cassandra.

 

                “Then hold on,” Changeling said glaring.

                           "Ouch! You pricked me!"

 

                                   Mad into sad.

                   "Now will you finally tell me what you are?"

                                 “You live in me?”
