Everybody laughed at my lunch.

I thought about putting it back in my Spider Man backpack and going hungry.

Teacher asked why I hadn’t brought bread. Didn’t I want a sandwich?

That mean kid Tommy yelled out, “His mom didn’t make him any lunch. That’s why he only has a package of ham.”

Everybody heard.

Teacher told Tommy to be quiet.

But Tommy was right.

I couldn’t wake Mommy up to help me.

I couldn’t wake her up most days.
