A Poem by Katie

As I check my bed,

visions of scorpions ring in my head.

When my covers are clean, I slip in between.

I hope night time critters won't be seen.

This is the first part of my evening routine.

I then dream of what may seem like an adventurous scheme.

I dream of the things I encountered that day,

monkeys swinging,

Tucans singing,

and ant bites stinging.

Before I know it, it's morning,

I look outside and see rain pouring.

It's time for breakfast and you know what that means,

fresh from the oven, rice and beans.
