Fourth Round Finalists

Eat Up!
Dear old teacher, please open your eyes
For lying before you there is a surprise
For starters, I’ll serve you a sewer scoop stew
Then a decaying salad, ten months old, for you
Now a burger made healthy with beets and chopped mice
and a drink made entirely of fresh blood and Slice
At last, my swell teacher, I fixed a delight
Cafeteria cake left from a food fight
Oh, my poor readers, I’m sorry to say,
Our teacher experienced food poisoning today.
—Katherine Jane Deichler, Grade 6
