Book Club Author's Voice

He sounds very whining because he gives a lot of complain in the story. Also he sometimes speaks deep because in some parts of the book he be a little angry like for example, he says he does not really get along with his son and also he says that he rather be in jail where he belongs.
He is sulky sometimes to because he is very lazy and do not likes to work or do nothing.

Homework! Oh Homework!

I think that the poet used hyperbole because he said that "he rather take a bath with an man eating shark " just to not do his homework, then he said that he would fight an lion in the dark if he has to to not do his homework, and that's an real big exaggeration .

I Have Hands Like My Dad

I think this poem is about joy and how he injoys life just like his dad does he talks about bout how his dad is always working behind his computers typing and things and how his dad has a lot of friends and they be shaking each others hands. So im thinking the he is trying to say that we works hard just like his dad in life and that he has a lot of friends just like him.

Stoping by the woods 1!

I think the poet is sleepy, it sounds like he was stress.

Also when he says that he has a lot of miles to go i think that he is trying to say that his house is very far away and he is not no where near so the horse is going to have to wait until they get home so he can rest. Also i think that he could've been dieing because he sounded tired when he was saying it in his poem. The house was probably tired to because he was shaking his he like he wanted to take an rest.

Lot's of..

Lot's of smiles
Lot's of hope
Lot's of pride
Lot by his side
He stands up high and says his speech
A speech that opened everyones hart
He is smart
he has faith
Obama Obama
Hes the one, people scream people cry,
It's all of joy that why
His kids and wife stand there right by his side
Very happy
I say to my self is this really coming true
And yes it was ..

The first African-American president
Of the United States of America !
