I hate hate hated my friend.
When I moved over in the school bus,
she sat somewhere else.
When her point broke in arithmetic
and I passed her my pencil,
she took Peter's instead.
"Ask her," my mother said.
"Ask your friend why."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great lesson I bought this for my sunday school class. They LOVED it! And it has a wonderful message as well. Even the adults enjoyed it. A fun way to teach about how to get along with those you "hate".
