About Stella Caloran...
My name is Stella Carolan and I’m 12 years old. I live on a farm with my two brothers and my parents and I love to read and write.
I go to Burren Junction Public School NSW, I am in year 6 and I love to swim and play most other sports.
I’ve always liked writing poems and stories, (especially ones with a twist).
Some of my poetry has been performed at the Narrabri Eisteddfod by myself and others.
I have also wrote a novel this year called ‘Eighteen’.
Take a Tablet by Stella Carolan
My Mum is super crazy,
My Mum is super wild.
And when I say crazy,
I don’t just mean mild.
She’s making me take a tablet,
She’s practically gone mad!
She says: “Come on Dear,
It can’t be that bad!”
“It’s like torture to me Mum,
Like a punishment.” I said.
“If you don’t take that tablet Son,
I will send you straight off to bed!”
“Why do I have to Mum?
Why, oh why?” I say.
“Oh come on Son.” She grumbled.
“We go through this everyday.”
She wouldn’t take no for an answer,
I had to think fast,
But by the time I had finished thinking,
The end of Mum’s patience had passed.
Then all of a sudden,
My mum began to shout.
She screamed and screamed and screamed!
It was starting to freak me out.
“You take that tablet now boy,
You take it right away!
You don’t want to know what will happen,
If you don’t do what I say!”
I stopped and stared at my Mother,
From her toes to her top…
“Well I refuse to STEAL a tablet
From the computer shop!”
