Playing my violin with squeaky sounds, Hearing notes in a nutty tune, Turning off the wreck song, But instead, it became wrong. My room twirled with blaring sound, Sparked, plugged off, and then My world became peaceful. -Elvira

One time, I saw myself In a shed full of shelves, Eating a horse as a main course As I went outside A dwarf war was on As the princess died I realized, It ‘s just a dream -Tamara
