I get B’s

November 6, 2007
I get B’s
She gets A’s.
I got a 59
She got 60.
I have two best friends
She has three.
I have $20 pants
She has $40 pants.
I have a pet fish
She has a pet iguana.
People like me
People love her.
I pass
She gets a perfect score.
They don’t pass to me
She always has the ball.
My bookshelf is full
She doesn’t have one.
I make $100 a month
She makes $200.
I’m pretty
She’s beautiful.
Want to know the difference?
I’m not perfect
She is.
Want to know who’s actually happy?
I am
She isn’t.

I thought this was kind of an average poem... until the last six lines. Then I'm just like "THIS IS AMAZING, FIVE STARS FOR YOU, YOU AMAZING CHILD."
