Another spontaneous poem by Cody  

I am Cody
I wonder whether ****** likes me
I hear 30 people
I see dirty people
I want candy
I am Cody

I pretend nothing
I feel good
I shoot rubber bands
I worry about nothing
I don’t cry
I am Cody

I understand the rules of basketball
I say so
I dream that I’ll be a pro basketball player
I try to get the class to be quiet
I hope my uncle Jackie feels better
Because I am Cody

 


 

 


 

 


CODY'S POEM  

IF I WERE IN CHARGE OF THE WORLD
By:  Cody Cochran
February 8, 2006

If I were in charge of the world,
My family would take monthly vacations to Pigeon Forge, Tn and the Great Smoky Mountains.
We would go to Daytona Beach once a week and I would get scared like a cat is from a dog by riding the Jaws ride.
I would never hear my mom say, "Cody, come here and clean out the dishwasher."
I could talk on the phone for more than 30 minutes a day.

If I were in charge of the world,
Teachers wouldn't lose stuff students worked on.
There wouldn't be no language arts class.
There would be no more homework.
No literacy class, because it's boring.

If I were in charge of the world,
Every house in the neighborhood would have a basketball goal.
There would be no U of K fans (except the football fans because the football team can't win!)
There would be no drug dealers waiting at bus stops.

If I were in charge of the world,
My friends would all know each other.
No suicides, murders or fights.  
No more guns, pow-pow.
And all trees would be candy stores growing chocolate.
