“Spring Fling” Kidlit contest entry

Ciara O’Neal has an annual SpringFling contest where Kidlit writers pair 150-words-or-fewer stories with an animated .gif. In my case, I chose to use a silly poem I had written. Read all about Spring Fling on Ciara’s blog.

Here is my entry for 2021. 🙂

I Think I Need a Band-Aid (111 words)

Remember when I bumped my arm?
I think I need a band-aid.

That summer I stepped on that nail at the farm?
I think I need a band-aid.

My forehead feels quite hot, you see.
I think I need a band-aid.

This paper cut keeps bothering me!
I think I need a band-aid.

My legs are bruised from my scooter crash.
I think I need a band-aid.

My arms are sore from taking out the trash.
I think I need a band-aid.

My brain hurts from spelling ‘weird’ and ‘friend.’
I think I need a band-aid.

And now I bit my tongue at the end,
So…
I thick I neeb a bandhaid.
