ezmy the poet, 1990:


by [Ezmy], age 10

Boys think they are tough

boys think they are rough

and the girls sit there and say

“oh really you think your so

tough and so rough. Well watch

this and they get up

and knock all the boys out

one by one!!!!

Things to note about this little gem:

*I’m not entirely sure what the significance of the spacing and lines is.

*I hadn’t really worked out punctuation yet. Or the difference between your and you’re.

*I clearly had a beef with the boys in my grade 5 class. And thought I could knock them out. Which is hilarious because I had (and indeed still have) the upper body strength of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
