Machine Poem.

I have an MP3 player
That plays songs for me.
I put it on loud
It vibrates the ground
It cracks my mirror and my glass too.

I have the very best songs
They are very long.
My favourite song is the whole cd
Where would I be without my MP3?.
Doing my homework. Boring!

Machine Poem

There was a motorbike in Panmure
That runs on pig manure
And it drives with two wheels
And it feels like it's on my heels!

But when it crashes it still drove
And it felt like it was on the stove
But everyone thinks it's cool
But I think it's just old school.

Dunkirk Wharf

it was time to go to the dunkirk wharf
i don't know why but I felt like a dwarf
it seems everyone around me is just too tall
so then again i thought i was small

time was ticking as we walked by
did i think we were going to die
everyone walked with their heads bowed down
next minute you see that they've grown a frown

lower our rods into the water
then i pull a fish that's a quarter
throw it back that's that
find my dad sitting back

finishing up that was fun
can't wait to get back so i started to run

Happiness Emotion Poem

Yellow is happiness
Happiness is as bright as the sun
Happiness has the flavour of lightly cooked scrambled eggs
Yellow has the aroma of gas
Happiness is as loud as childrens laughter
Happiness is the beautiful vibrant sun
Happiness makes me smile on the inside
Happiness is good

A Day out on a Fishing Boat

On Saturday the 14th of August a man named Christopher Wilde and his girlfriend Jessica Olsan,
went out on a fishing trip to the sea. They were both happy. The day was brilliant, but then drips of rain poured down with anger. The weather had gone from brilliant to terrible.

They were traveling at 21 knots. But then they heard a big clutter. As they walked to the back of the boat they noticed that the motor had disappeared. They were passed the lifeguard flags. They were beyond the middle of the ocean, heading for disaster. The sign read DANGER BEWARE!!!!.

The boat was swaying from left to right. Luckily Jessica had dialed the Westpac helicopter rescue.They were on their way. As soon as they arrived one of the crew members safely got down on a rope. He held Jessica and the other crew members pulled up the rope. The helicopter was trying to keep its balance but the rain kept on smashing into the helicopter. Now that Jessica was saved she was crying really hard. Then one of the crew members went back down to get Christopher.

They were both safe in the helicopter. The boat crashed into huge rocks. The helicopter went back to the helicopter base. They both thanked the helicopter members for their kind help.

A few days later they returned to the helicopter base and thanked their rescuers. They gave them red and yellow flowers and a large box of chocolates.

A Fisherman's Tale

Once upon a tale an old man and his son went fishing and caught the biggest fish ever. It pulled them into the water.

They couldn't breathe. Sharks circled around them getting ready to attack. Suddenly an octopus's tentacles rushed through the water and grabbed them. Their eyes were gloomy with fear. Then a helicopter rose from out of the distance.

The octopus swam away leaving the old man and his son in the water. The helicopter saw them. The sharks swam away.

The helicopter picked them up and took them back to shore, where they went back home.

A day out on a Fishing Boat.

I woke up near the window and saw the bright sun reflecting its power onto earth. As Mercury made its way down onto my face it was almost like we were greeting each other in Maori.
So I got up and got ready. I am the second oldest in the family, which means I have to help out my mum or my cousins.
"Darling you're going fishing with your cousins. ' Kay!" yelled my mum.
"Okay then mum," I sighed.

We  hopped into the boat and off we went to the sea. We stopped at a very dangerous place that has sharks that bite you like 6 knives stabbing you. This isn't a good place to fish at but it has very good Kaimoana. After we had finished fishing we headed back home, but as we were going I accidently pushed my cousin Montey into the sea.
"Help! Help! Help me!" she cried.
OMG me and my cousins panicked. What should we do.
"Pull him up," I said. So we pulled her up and suddenly "Shckk" we heard a cracking noise. "Aaaahhhh! My leg," screamed Montey. We quickly pulled her up and saw her leg.
"What happened Montey?" I asked.
"A shark bit my poor leg."  I got my sweater and tied it around her leg.

We started the engine and headed back home, but we were out'a gas. Luckily I had my cellphone with me. So i dialed the Rescue Helicopter to come to our rescue.

1 hour later and we were still stuck, and my cousin was still very, very badly hurt. Then we looked up at the sky. "ITS OUR RESCUE," I cried. So the medicos Sharon and Brian came down to get us one by one.

Finally we were safe at home with our family. On the other hand Montey had to go hospital.

The moral of this story is to never go fishing in a dangerous place and to always take some spare gas for your engine.

Loneliness is dark blue.
To my tongue it's sour milk that's been in the sun for days.
That stinky cheese you've had in the fridge for weeks.
A stray dog meandering down the streets.
A woman in a burning building screaming for help.
To me loneliness is horrifying.

Happiness is as bright as the sun.
Just like a huge pot of gold.
The air that symbolises the freshness of mint.
As if it is reflecting the sun.
Just like laughter filling peoples heart.
As if your dreams came true.
