Broccoli Time Machine: A Business Proposal
Kaiden Ellis, Age 10
The BTM (Broccoli Time Machine) provides free time machine experiences that run on broccoli, and it also produces its own broccoli. Now, we can go back in time to solve our Earth’s history mysteries. Or for school you can take field trips into history to experience it. You can either spectate or be in history and change it. So because of that, you have to be a good person in order to get one. I say, “Get one!” because they are free! All in all, this invention will help mankind! Thank you for hearing my idea!

How dare you!
You owe me some new plums!
I was gonna eat those
with my fruity-looty Froot Loops!
And watch funny cat videos!
Also, you owe me a new ice box!
You slammed it too hard and made a dent!
I’m so mad.
Sam, Who Played Football
Samere Brown, Age 8
It all began when Sam played football. He is round; he has strawberry jelly inside him. He is not good at football. They stepped on him. The pink jelly came out. The coach threw pink jam - Sam licked the jelly. The jelly came out, and the coach threw strawberry jelly at him. When he got up, he tripped over the jelly, and he got stuck in the jelly. They tried to throw the football and it went through his hole. They’re friends, but they don’t know he is a donut. He’s gonna go in the break room and take all his stuff off -- his football jersey, his fake legs, his shoulder pads, and his eyes and hair. Then he rolled down and got stuck in a closet. He sat there in a closet. They won the game because Sam left. He ate himself, and came back as a plastic donut. He rolled out, and they found out he was a donut.
After the game, they went in the break room -- he was crying candy and watching Inside Out. A car came in and hit him, and turned him into part elephant, dolphin, and cotton candy. His team feels excited, because he is part elephant, dolphin, and cotton candy. He then eats his own tears because they're candy.

Ode to Dr. Blotch
Ja'Qub Anthony, Age 9
In the morning you eat a bowl of bad manager souls.
You look like an evil girl goblin
and I feel your hair of boogers.
You smell like pears.
I love your laughs of choking goblins
when you turn kids into robots.
I hear children's screams.
I remember a kid that got turned into a robot
and I'm glad that I didn't get turned into a robot.
The Blue Sweater
Gabriel Etheridge, Age 6
One day, a lion was shopping at the mall and saw a blue sweater. Lion said, “I want that blue sweater.”
The cat said, “The sweater is $8.55.” The lion cried. He was sad. He only had $5.25, and it was $8.55. He sadly walked home.
