It's Mine!

David MacPhearson Alistair Magee
had every toy you can name
for a boy
that is three.

When he had friends over
he always would whine:
Don't touch my things
every toy here is mine!

He'd take all his toys
and he wouldn't share.
He didn't have a friend.
and he didn't care.

Now David MacPhearson Alistair Magee
is as alone
as a little boy can be.

     Thanks to Joan Edwards for the suggestion for this poem.  Have you ever had your feelings hurt because someone wouldn't share with you?  Can you write a poem about it?  Or perhaps you'd like to try writing a list poem about all the toys that David owned.  Write on!

  1. I wonder what David was like when he turned 23! I think Joan had a great suggestion for a poem and you made it a reality. Way to go, Joy.
