Problem solving

kyoko

Why do you not like her?
(says Ruby).
She used to not like you
but now you don’t like her.

She used to problem solve.
Her powers helped her problem solve.
But she gave her powers
to her friends.

Whenever they want to play
with barbies, “Pooh!
We don’t want to play with you,
bogey girl!”

Kyoko and our babies
used to problem solve.
They say, “Bake me. Bake me.
Eat me if you can.”
