Let’s Go Nuts! by Charli Pakleppa (Third Prize)

We go crazy, craaaazy when we’re in the class.
We think of things that’re a blast!
We talk of funny things like eating our mother’s underwear
And burping out shoes like we just don’t care.
If we could do the things we like,
We could cancel maths and go on a hike!
We could swing through trees,
and dress like bees.
We could scream out loud and snort and sneeze!
We go crazy, craaaaazy when we’re class,
But today, for now, l will not hurl,
For I want to prove I’m an intelligent girl!
