Young Writers in Action: My Shirt is Gone

My shirt is gone
I checked everywhere, including the lawn

I checked in the freezer
And in my favourite game called Brain Teaser

I checked under my bed
Even on my Barbie’s head

I checked in my laundry and in my closet
And in my bank account where I put money to deposit

I checked in the shower in the bathroom
But only ended up making it look like a lagoon

My mum screamed at me because I went through her clothes
And ruffled in her bathroom through all the bows

Oh my shirt, where can it be?
I checked everywhere and then realised it was right on me!
