To inspire you I would like to share with you my favourite poem from our 2015 competition:
I PUT MY BROTHER IN TIMEOUT!!! By Belinda Jackson (1st prize Children’s and people’s choice)
I PUT MY BROTHER IN TIMEOUT!!!
A devil with blonde hair
and rageed t-shirt
because he punched Charly
Ouch he screamed
I’m as mad as a buffalo
So I said TIME OUT
You are going to the principal
because you did such a naughty thing and you
to miss out on the special TIME OUT PARTY
Ding!!! Dong!!! went the bell time to go home and baggy pants
