DMC: "A Friend" by Kristi Dee Veitenheimer
Mama scolded me this morning.
I got syrup in my pigtails,
but I didn’t mean to.
Now I can’t have syrup
Teacher punished me this morning.
I was eating paste,
but it was just a little.
Now I can’t use paste
Penny ignored me this morning.
She always plays with me at recess,
but she said I couldn’t.
I don’t belong in the club
You sat beside me on the steps this morning.
I was sad and alone,
but you put your arm around my shoulders.
And I don't feel so bad
