You Don't Always Get What You Want
Trisha, Age 12, Orlando, FL

Once upon a time,
When the streets were filled with crime,
A small girl was born,
On a splendid Friday morn.

Parents were wealthy,
But she grew up unhealthy,
She became a brat,
They gave her toys and a hat.

One day she wanted…
“A better doll!” she vaunted.
Her parents exclaimed,
“NO!” and they were unashamed.

They sat down proudly,
Their daughter saying loudly,
“Why not!? Oh, why not!?”
“I am sorry we cannot.”

That goes to show you,
Brats can’t get what they want too.
Follow your virtues,
Sometimes, parents must refuse.
