SPRING FLING 2021 KIDLIT CONTEST
DO NOT CATCH A LEPRECHAUN
By Jamie Bills
BEFORE St. Patrick’s Day, my teacher said, “You should make a leprechaun trap.” BEFORE St. Patrick’s Day, I thought it was a good idea. I wish I could go back to BEFORE. BEFORE I made the trap. BEFORE I caught a leprechaun. BEFORE that leprechaun ruined my life. Because… AFTER I caught him he snored all night and woke me at dawn… “TOP OF THE MORNING TO YA, LAD!” AFTER I caught him he played tricks on me. AFTER I caught him he dressed me up like a Leprechaun. AFTER I caught him he took over my piggy bank… and my room. AFTER I caught him I was too busy dancing the jig to play video games. AFTER I caught him I tried to set him free. Take my advice: Do NOT make a leprechaun trap! Because you can’t return to BEFORE… AFTER you catch a leprechaun. “MORE DANCING LAD!”
