ALMOST LATE
By: Carol Diggory Shields

First there was a landslide
That completely blocked the street.

And then I stepped in quicksand-
I could hardly move my feet.

Then I had to help this kid
To get his lunch box back
From a pack of hungry poodles
That was ready to attack.

I was almost at the schoolyard-
Just one block away-
When a nice old lady asked me
If I’d help her find her way.
And then…

It’s only 8:15?
I got here right on time?
Nope. No problems getting here.
My walk to school was fine.
