A Day as a Caddy This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


I must leave the house at 6:30a.m.
When I get to the course
The morning dew is stillon the greens
There are other caddies waiting to get out onthe course
Finally! Somebody needs me

I introducemyself to the man I will be slaving for
He hits his firstshot
A bad one
I now know this will be a long day
Myarms hurt
But walking down the 18th fairway
All the paingoes away and
I wonder what I will be paid

Finally,when the round is over
I shake the man's hand
And hepays me well

I pocket four crisp ten dollarbills
And head for home
In time for lunch
Then aftera good meal

A noon nap
