Sleepless night

Can’t fall asleep drive me crazy

My head is hurt and I hate it

My body is powerless can’t control it

Night is my morning, why? why?

Can’t fall asleep drive me crazy

My eyes are strange I can’t close it

The clock is ticking I can hear it

Night is my morning, why? why?

Can’t fall asleep drive me crazy

The dark make me so scary

I want to sleep so I like it

Know is morning, why? why?

Ballad of the Black Slave-Michael Issac palmer

This is the ballad of the black slave,

Who has been beaten and disgraced,

Who has been called the n-word and negro,

Who has received no pay.

This is the ballad of the black slave,

Who prays for freedom every night,

Who is going to rebel,

For what he thinks is right.

Now this is the ballad of the freed slave,

Who has seen much blood shed,

Who has fought for equal rights,

And who has won his freedom.

Keesh’s Character Paragraph

Describe Keesh’s Character

Keesh was a confident, clever, and brave boy. Firstly, he showed his brave character at the beginning of the story when he says, “It is true that my mother and I are given meat to eat. But the meat is always old and tough, filled with bones, and difficult to eat.” This shows that he was very brave because he had courage to speak out. He wasn’t afraid of standing up to and speaking to the hunters who were older than him. Secondly he said, “I shall never speak in this council again-not until you come to me and say ‘Keesh, we want you to speak.’” Although it is very rude when a child talks like that to an adult, it also shows that how confident Keesh was. He had the confidence to go hunting by himself with nobody and bring some meat back to share with everyone. He also wanted to prove himself that he was not just a kid because he was the son of Bok; the best hunter in the village. Lastly, Keesh was also very clever. At the end of the story, he explained why he could kill a big bear, even a bear with cubs. Everyone was surprised and realized that the way to hunt bears was using the brain. This shows that Keesh was very clever because no one thought of it. The hunters only knew how to fight a bear but didn’t know how to hunt a bear. All in all, Keesh was a confident, brave and clever boy.
