TITLE: The Plagiarizerís Honesty

this is something that really happened to me as a child, the memory itself could be looked at much more comically-that is, if i had chosen to write it from an adults perspective-but i chose to write it from a child's experience. Therefore, it is sad and somewhat crestfallen. But those are the things that happen to children...or at least as i was a child. :)

the part closed to ending with the word "down" is diagonal. (Though faithwriters program wont allow that...grr!)

anyway, thanks for your time and patience.

just a random question for all you "grammar people", a memoir can be A POEM, correct? I know they are mostly short shorties...but this is a short story...in poem form...? input is always welcome!

God Bless!
The Plagiarizerís Honesty
A Memoir

My first grade teacher
Once read to us
A story
About
A cat.
I canít remember
Anything about
The cat,
Or the long story.
But, I remember
How
Much
I
Loved it.
That story
About a
Cat.
So I grabbed
The book
Off the chalk ledge,
And
Began to
Diligently
Copy
That story
About a
Cat.
I loved
That book.
And it was a
L
O
N
G
Book.
But
I
wanted it.
So I
Could take it
Home
And read it
Again
And
Again
Because I
Loved
That story.
And I
Wanted it
Badly.
When I was
Half-way done
Copying
One of the boys
In the class
Called out
From across the room,
ďYouíre copying!
Thatís against
The law!Ē
Horrified,
I looked up
At my
Teacher.
I was
confused.
I didnít
Understand
What it was
That I
Had
Done
Wrong.
ďYou canít
Copy
That story!Ē
He shouted
At me
Again.
My teacher told me
That it
Was okay
That I copied,
Only because
I didnít know
Any better.
I
Cried
Because
I wanted
That
Story
To keep,
And I couldnít
Have it
Because of that
Mean boy
Who shouted
At me
From across the classroom.
He
Hurt
My feelings.
He didnít
Even
Say sorry
To me.
He said that I was
Plagiarizing,
And that
It was
Bad.
And I didnít
Want to do
Something
Bad.
So I put
My paper
Away
In my desk,
And threw
The pages
Away
Later
In regret
For what I
Had done.
I closed the
L
O
N
G
Story up,
And put
My
Head
D
O
W
N
And
Cried
Until
School
Was out.
