Lunchbox Worthy

By Laila Voss, age 12

Dear Mom,

 

I love your lunch box notes,

I love them very much.

 

But could you turn it down a bit,

perhaps an awful bunch?

 

I think they’re quite embarrassing,

and all my friends do too.

 

When you asked how I was feeling after the night,

I upchucked my beef stew.

 

Especially when your reminded me,

to use my special lice shampoo.

 

Remember when you mentioned the F

I got on my book review?

 

I know you’ll find this a trifle odd,

as you always seem to do.

 

But please don’t yell at me,

or send me to my room.

 

Now I must place this note,

with the stealthiest of stealth.

 

And I hope this reaches your lunch box,

in the bestest of health.
