Pete's Poems

by Pete Sorensen when he was in Elementary School

I do not understand
Why school is so long
Why Russia invades other countries
Why there is war
But most of all I don't see why
Teachers give so much homework
Homework can ruin somebody's whole week.
What I do understand is dogs
They are so good
That if you scold them, in 10 minutes
They will still love you.

Pete and his dog Molly

I am happy
Not party happy
Not like a man who has one 1,000 dollars happy
Not happy like a kid who doesn't have to clean
His room
But just happy that summer vacation is coming
Glad that I am alive
Glad that I live in a nice house
Glad that I have Molly, my dog.
