This week, we have a poem written by Salem Saikali, from Ottawa, Ontario. Salem has recently been enrolled in literacy classes at People, Words and Change (PWC) in Ottawa.
When you do the laundry,
You separate the whites from the colours.
You wash your clothes when they get dirty.
You wash the clothes in a washing machine.
When it is sunny, you put the clothes on the clothesline.
And you don’t have to worry about putting in a dime.
Kids get dirty real fast.
And some moms get mad.
Some moms are glad.
When kids get dirty it doesn’t seem so bad.
