3rd & 7th Grade Rhymes

 My writers' group had some fun with Dorothy Parker's Inventory.  I did it last week.  Here is my 3rd grader's:

Four be the things I am wiser to know:
Chinchillas, friends, candy, and snow.

Four be the things I'd be better without:
Meat, medicine, dust, and Grandpa's gout.

Three be the things I shall never attain:
King, snakes, and fame.

Three be the things I shall have till I die:
Hazel eyes, friends, and apple pie.

Here is her sister's, the 7th grader's:

Four be the things I am wiser to know:
Music, art, hockey, and I don't know.

Four be the things I'd be better without:
Sadness, accidents, pain, and doubt.

Three be the things I shall never attain:
An alligator, meanness, and cocaine.

Three be the things I shall have till I die:
Friends, hockey, and brown eyes
