No Muhammad Ali
by Royal G
No Muhammad Ali but I love to fight,
I’m better than Kevin Durant AKA, Young Money Snipe.
I’m tuff at Basketball don’t mind the height.
I didn’t mention football but I’m swift like Taylor,
on November 13th my mom went into labor.
I still ain’t mention Ja I’m most hated,
I’m just like Juice world, I’m so enervated.
We went from 2-3 into 2-2-1 plato got baited.
When I Play Fortnite
by Tommy H.
When I play Fortnite,
a light appears in the night,
I’m like Batman
if I see you doing something
bad at Walmart
to bring you to the light.
In the light of Gotham’s night,
a figure takes flight
a hero in the shadows,
a symbol of light.
His cape flows like a river,
his eyes gleam like a star,
he stalks the streets, a phantom,
the dark knight, appears in the light.
by Chika O.
Mum says, I’ve always been a fast reader.
Dad says, I’m meant to be a leader.
My sister says, don’t let your height go to waste.
My brother says let your skills show in the light.
I question, why not all?
Mr. Charmelo, 7th grade, 2nd period
Music is joyful and I’m very thankful for music to make me hopeful.
When I play music I am playful. Some music is powerful enough
to make me peaceful and make my heart full.
I like drawing,
anyone who doesn’t is appalling.
