Brian Barnes, Grade 6, Oberon Public School
3rd in the 'Write As Rain 2014' competition
My father told me to get the wrench
But this is what I got off the bench!
Five hot fiery iron bars
A couple of gleaming shooting stars;
A hundred cartons of strawberry milk
Some sticky stylish spider silk;
A gigantic packet of chewy toffee
And fifteen jars of powdery black coffee.
I also got some sticky fondue
And some icky Mountain Dew.
Seventeen thousand red raw steaks
And some muddy chocolate cakes!
Now when my father needs tools from the shed
He sends my baby brother instead!
