  4. 4.  SONNET 18Shall I compare thee to a summers day? 
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summers lease hath all too short a date: 
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmd; 
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or natures changing course untrimmd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wanderst in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest: 
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.
  5. 5.  Milton! thou shouldst be living at this hour:England hath need of thee: she is a fenOf stagnant waters: altar, sword, and pen,Fireside, the heroic wealth of hall and bower,Have forfeited their ancient English dowerOf inward happiness. We are selfish men;Oh! raise us up, return to us again;And give us manners, virtue, freedom, power.Thy soul was like a Star, and dwelt apart;Thouhadst a voice whose sound was like the sea:Pure as the naked heavens, majestic, free,So didst thou travel on lifes common way,In cheerful godliness; and yet thy heartThe lowliest duties on herself did lay.
  6. 6.  I work and work to get the moves right I try to relate to the song but sometimes I can’t We are just a week away; I still haven’t got the move right move But I still practice every day, every day I almost have it When we get to the day I am as nervous as a person getting chased by the swat team But I try to hold in all the nervousness inside and try to concentrate The closer I get to the time I get more confident in my self Its time and when I’m done everyone stands When I leave, I leave knowing that I’ve done my best
  7. 7.  We looked into the the fridge and it wasn’t good Then Carlton said “ Dude what is that” And there it was a jar of mayonnaise. Now the mayonnaise was a creamy color but What was on the jar made us jump, it and it had a letter that said  WERE WATCHING YOU BETTER WATH YOUR BACK And there was a picture of a gun. We had no idea how it got there We were watching are every move Till the door open and in walked a man and a women dressed in all black and before we could run they both pulled out a gun but before they could do anything the jar of mayonnaise jumped out and beet down the bad guys he was SUPER MAYONIASE
