My little brother is so irritating. All day long he says,
Eddie, I wonder why people can talk but animals cant. Or,
I wonder why the ocean looks blue. Of course, I dont know
the answers, but I dont let him know that. I just make up
reasonable explanations, and he accepts them as if Im the
smartest person in the world. Before I answer one of his
questions, I usually tell him that hes pretty stupid and asks
too many questions.

Well, yesterday we both got our report cards. I got Bs and


Cs, and he got straight As. Under the Comments section on
my report card, it said, Eddie would be getting better grades
if he asked more questions. Of course, on my brothers
report card, it said just the opposite.

To make things worse, my brother squawked all day about


how I was so stupid for not asking questions! I just sighed
and told him he was rightI wouldn't make fun of him
anymore for asking so many questions.

Yes, I learned a lesson from my little brother: Never be


afraid to ask questions, and NEVER be afraid to wonder why.

were said by Uriah to David and Mr. Wickfield at Davids room when Mr. Wickfield
arrived and Uriah wanted to show David that he is the one in control of the office
and he left his assistant there. The theme revealed here is abuse of power leads to
others sufferings in rising action. This is an indirect characterization that shows
how Uriah hates David and wanted to show that he is in control. I think Uriah
considers himself the owner of the office.

Poetry
Introduction to poetry:
By: Billy Collins

I ask them to take a poem


and hold it up to the light
like a color slide

or press an ear against its hive

I say drop a mouse into a poem


and watch him probe his way out,

or walk inside the poems room


and feel the wells for a light

I want them to water-ski


across the surface of a poem
waving at the authors name on the shore.

But all they want to do


is tie the poem to a chair with rope
and torture a confession out of it.

They being beating it with a hose


to find out what it really means.

The poet here is a teacher who gives his poetry students some advice to learn. He tells
them to take a poem and see it in the light as a color slide, or to listen to its hive (the
sound comes from a bees nest).

He says that if they drop an animal like a mouse in to the poem, it will walk in the poem
as in a vacant room. He, also, wants them to water-ski over the poem as in the sea and
they will reach the shore which is the authors name. Also, if they walk inside this room
(poem) they will feel the walls lightened.

However the poet advices the students to enjoy poetry, they treat it as a prisoner, who
is tied to a chair and tortured to confess its meaning.
