Here are two of my poems (a sample of my writing)
your socks don’t match!
as if I didn’t know.
But socks that clash
have much more dash,
the way to go.
The principal bought black socks,
seven pairs, all the same.
He says his black socks always match,
I think that’s such a shame.
I close my eyes when choosing socks
one stripes, one spots,
one bright, one grey.
It’s better when my socks don’t match—
sock lucky-dips every day.

‘Odd socks’ first appeared in The School Magazine: Blast Off, June 2014, issue no. 5.
My sister ate the biscuit
the last one in the jar,
I thought that I could sneak it
but I didn’t sneak it far —
as I snuck it past my sister
she gave an angry shriek!
It’s a problem when your sneakers
have more squeak than they have sneak.
