Sarah's Short Life

December 22, 2008
By Sarah Park, Surrey, ZZ

There was a girl who wrote a ballad
Her name in Chinese was Salad
She hated homework and loved to play.
She really hated the color gray

It was a fad day
The day Sarah was on the sleigh
This girl wrote ballads in her writing pad
Then to school came a lad,

She had to write an essay,
instead she used pink hair spray
Now everyone was mad,
for it was the day of the grad.

Sarah was on the bay,
soaked with ocean spray.
She auditioned for an ad,
in a not so good way.

The director cried, “YAY!”
And Sarah sneaked away.
The trouble was not delayed,
so as she performed a little ballet.

It began to be pallid,
As now her driver’s license was invalid.
So she wanted her life to replay,
but it couldn’t so she ran a relay.

She lost so she helped the chef make salad,
she made all kinds of valid salad.
But she missed the screenplay,
so she went to the Theatre Olay.

On the way, she went to Rocket’s Ballad,
to eat some more salad.
But on the way,
She tripped on the railway,
And therefore she died.
