ALL ABOUT ME
An acrostic by James
James is a very good man at adding but is not a person who likes to talk:
Adding is the first thing I learned to do. I thought it was gonna be hard at first.
Multiplication is now easy. I learned to do multiplication when I was 5 years old.
Every day I go to school. School is cool. Always I might be late, but I will always be there.
Sunday is my day, very awesome Sunday, always Sunday
would always be my day.
Peace and kindness is what I try to give, nice kind little James.
East, west, north south—where I go? You tell me!

ODE TO PANDAS
