Do I have to?

By !Liz! O.
Grade 7, Illinois

Do I have to write this poem?
Do I have to set the table,
do the dishes, take out the garbage?
Do I have to write this poem?
Do I have to do my homework, fold the clothes, walk the dog?
Do I have to write this poem?
Do I have to watch my little sister,
make her a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, read her a book?
Do I have to write this poem?

YEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS! (and do it NOW!)
