I Turned 7 on 9/11

by Xander Floss

THEY cancelled my birthday party all right.
They left my cake in the classroom for a week.
My dad stayed home the whole time and drank.
My mom hugged me so much I cried.
My sister became pen pals with a fireman.
My brother said he was going to become a cop.
The neighbors got together and killed and ate that foreigner who had just moved in across the street.
My dog ran away and came back a different color.
I like watching Nick at Nite.
They let us go back to school finally.
When I opened up the present the teacher got me
I was happy because it was something I wanted.
But then Big Bobby McNamara took it and broke it.
Now I am 12.
