I Got a Kick Out of Leila
One day when I came home from school
Uncle Fount and Aunt Helen were there
Entering, all eyes were on me
I felt a thickness in the air!
Mom took my lone ranger lunch box
A small bruise on my leg was found
When she asked what happened, I said,
"A girl kicked me on the playground!"
She asked me why the girl did that
And who was the girl to blame
I said, "Leila Kilpatrick did,"
"I guess to live up to her name!"
Then everyone laughed about it
To me, the air wasn't so thick
I learned the power of a joke
When young Leila, gave me that kick!
