A creature steps off the bus

It is nervous

Yet is eager to learn

In a place they call school


The creature looks around

At all the people

And tries to find others

With the same interests


The bell for lunch rings

It gets food and finds a seat

But people are shocked and say

"You're eating?"



Was it not supposed to?

Was it eating too much?


There was a dance team

The creature loved it

And wanted to join

Laughing they said

"This is a dance team

Not a jiggle team"


Upon returning home

The creature tossed

Half of the food

It had


Food was the root

Of all evil

It's gluttony they said

So the creature only ate

Out of necessity


The creature looks

In the mirror

But doesn't see

The skeleton of a girl

Looking back
