People living in a cell
Are living in hell
But this cell is bright
It is such a pretty sight

Violets are blue

So are you
And when I look at ice cream
I always dream about you

'My painting' by Lauren Garrigos

It’s not like any other thing
It’s very, very bright
It movedf you when you look at it
With its abandoned light

I don’t know how I drawed it
It’s as juicy as a fig

Needs a little trim

'There’s a house in my ghost' by Tiegan Taggart

When I look at this painting
It looks so real
I love the way it makes me feel
Its makes me so proud
I want to scream out loud
The sky is blue
The sea is green
When I look at this painting
It’s like looking at a dream

I chose to draw bacteria
As it causes hysteria
My belly is full of worms
Because of all these germs
The fellow makes me mellow
The red send me to bed
The blue makes me look ugly
Just like you

'Scarface' by Peter Hughes

Scary, glary, staring eyes
Peeping out from the wavy
Black lines
Watching your foot steeps wherever
You go
And rainbow colours from behind
It glow
