My Dad

It was summer

in Puerto Rico

we would eat

ice cream

and ride

motorcycles

around

the park

In the yard

we had chickens

gallinas

and roosters

we told jokes

on the court

we played

basketball

And the best part

me and my dad

we went to the beach

la playa

to talk and

play games

he was so

funny
