Two Voice Poem

The Ionia Free Fair is coming to town this week, which makes this little blogger one happy camper (literally... my family camps at the fairgrounds). I LOVE the fair, although I'm one of the few in Ionia who do. I thought I'd try my hand at a 2 voice poem to show the difference between a child's view and a parent's view of a day at the fair.

UGH- Keep in mind that Blogger doesn't let me do 2 columns, so read the poem as if the two sections were side by side.

The free fair is in town!
I LOVE it!

ride fair rides,

eat Frazee Fries,

watch tractor pulls,

play carnival games.

Good thing it’s a
Free Fair!

The fair is in town.
Pay twenty dollars for a wristband to
ride fair rides,
pay five dollars to
eat Frazee Fries
Pay thirty dollars to
watch tractor pulls
Pay ten dollars to
play carnival games
I thought this was a

Free Fair…
