Poem about a centipede buying shoes. Winning entry Writing 4 kids Contest Jan 22.
A centipede went to Kmart,
For one thousand pairs of shoes.
She chose all different colours;
Reds, and whites, and blues.
She also bought spare laces,
And one thousand pairs of socks.
Then took them to the counter,
Where they were put into a box.
Next she caught a rabbit cab,
That bounced her to a garden;
She waited there, for her kids,
To return from kindergarten.
Such spending may sound wasteful;
Instead of food to eat,
But she has twenty boys and girls;
And all of them have feet.
