Dr. Louis Pasternak Skullstench: Stealth Poet
Poetry Assignment #22: An Opposites Poem
Rules from Mom and Dad
Chew with your mouth closed
Always say please
Sit still in your chair
It’s not nice to tease
Rules I Wish I Could Give Mom and Dad
Don’t kiss me in public
Don’t ruffle my hair
Don’t beat box or skateboard
Or make my friends stare
Do not call me sweetie!
Do not put my underwear on a clothesline!
Do not pick your nose in the car!
