‘Barefoot’ – Mairead B, Y8

The warm sand on bare toes,

The ocean water as the tide goes,

The soft pebbles on the shore,

The green grass on the floor…


Hawaii is home for the barefoot.


But wait, not the hot rocks covered in black soot,

Not the fiery lava where the volcanoes erupt,

Not the seaweed which happens to interrupt

Your pleasant swims until a shark BITES

I guess Hawaii took away your Barefoot rights.
