15 minute poet


Gabe knocked off the following poem for his homework in a little over 15 minutes under pressure of missing something on tv.

About Reflection:
Reflection means being quiet
and thinking about the past
Regretting when you told your mate
that your were really fast,
Remembering the day
that you won your first medal,
Telling mum and Dad
that you broke the piano pedal,
But most importantly of all
Reflection means,
Remembering those happy days
when you didn’t eat your greens!
