‘Today was the worst day
in my whole entire life.
Five bad things happened.

  1.  I forgot my lunch—again.
  2. I missed out on play lunch.
  3. Celia hit me with a hat.
  4. Then Celia hit me with some
    nail polish in a glove.
  5. At soccer people stooded
    on my head.’

Oh lucky Max.
You’re six. And you survived.
May this truly be the worst day

in your whole entire life.
May you never have another day
as bad as this.


From Senior Poems by Rachel McAlpine
