Humans

By Max Graham Year 5

Humans, they're so weak.

If our ancestors didn't fall for their tricks, I'd be able to be the boss again.

Humans, they're so bossy, they won't let me go loo on the rug, and they put me outside.

Humans, they're so...is that a treat?

Gimme, gimme!

I'll sit and roll

and lie down

anything you like –

JUST GIVE ME A TREAT!
