Honest

This is how it happened.

We were playing touch

and they all said: ‘You’re on it’

and I said: ‘I don’t want to be on it’

and they said: ‘Yes’

and I said: ‘No’

and they said: ‘Yes’

and I said: ‘No

and I tried, I really tried.

I tried everything to get them to stop

and they wouldn’t

so I stood with my hands like claws

and some one accidentally ran into my claws.

It’s the truth.

Honest.

I’m not lying

this time.
