The poems in this volume cover everything from poo to religion, bullying to friendships, birth to death, and are ideal for reading alone or with mum and dad: Though you live in a house With a proper address And wear proper clothes Not my hand-me-down dress Though you think that you're better Than I'll ever be And look down on our equals I'm proud to be me.
