Science Fair Project
The purpose of my project this year
Is to make my brother disappear.
The world would be a better place
If my brother vanished without a trace.
1 younger brother
1 kitchen sink
Chop up the erasers.
Add the white-out and the ink.
Rub it on the brother
While he's standing in the sink.
The kid was disappearing!
I had almost proved my theorem!
When all at once my mom came home
And made me re-appear him.
Experiment a failure.
My brother is still here.
But I'm already planning
For the science fair next year.
