Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

I made this poem for a grade in history class.
My name is Frank
I was only three
This is a story
All about me

I slept alone
When the big men came
They treated us like dirt
I hung my head in shame

A little ship
With a pretty little name
Sally danced in the sun
Who knew she’d lead them to fame?

I sat in filth
And wept in pain
Little to eat,
Was this a cruel game?

My journey starts in Africa
And ends in God knows where
This travel is making me sick
Now I know death is near

The old guy next to me
Died days ago
He reeks unimaginably
It wasn’t his time to go.

Please God help us,
Can’t you see?
All this pain and suffering
What its doing to me!

Take me off this ship
Let me live another day
This cant be the end
There is no way!
