Radio Poets 2017: Martin Levy

"Tofu Like Kung Fu"

Martin Levy, Garfield Elementary

Oh Yeah! I’m a slice of tofu.

Sure I’m super fluffy.

I’m brown.

I’m tasty.

WOW! I am like a pillow.

I am as yummy as skittles

I am round like a hot air balloon.

I wish to be eaten by people around the world.

I will be the greatest prize presented worldwide.

I’m cool like kung fu.

Because I am tofu.
