Night Time by Abby Jennings (First Prize)

Something Red by Alex Milne (Second Prize)

My dad was at the shop.
He saw something red.
Thought it was a capsicum,
Bought it and took it home.

He opened it.
Took a big bite,
His face went red.
We laughed.

His eyes watered like rain.
We gave him a coke, 
It made it worse!

His head exploded.
He needed a head transplant.

Burning tongue, it was on fire.
Cough, cough, cough!
We laughed harder.

Then we gave him some milk.
Poor dad.
He ate chilli.
End of story.
