Charlie's Lunch
Charlie’s Lunch
Jill McDougall

I’ve got my brother’s lunchbox,
With The Wiggles on the lid,
He prob’ly picked up mine instead
(He’s just a little kid).
So Charlie’s got my health bar
And my favourite yoghurt snack,
And I’ve got little kiddie lunch,
-Too late to change it back.
I could go and see the teacher,
But she’d say ‘Don’t bother me.’
I guess I’m stuck with Charlie’s lunch,
I’ll be half-starved by three.

Here we go. What’s is this stuff?
A tin of custard pears,
Two egg and lettuce sandwiches
Cut into mini squares,
Three cherry drops with jelly tops,
Four skinny carrot sticks,
Five cubes of watermelon, no,
you’d better make that six.
And right down at the bottom is
What’s this? A chocolate crunch!
Where’s my place? I need some space,
I’m having Charlie’s lunch.
