Cabaret 2014- Poem and Recount.

Poem:

the podium was staring at me,

the script in the big book

that only I could see.

The words began pouring out of my mouth,

trying to be the great narrator

everyone thought I could be.

I don’t know if I was,

if I read the words right,

but only I could see the script

in the concert of the night.

 

I rushed to my position,

backstage to the wings,

and everyone around me

could feel the tension.

We started singing,

the music ringing

in my ears,

and then I knew that this was it,

Cabaret 2014.

 

 Recount:

On Tuesday 28th of October 2014, Moonee Ponds Primary School walked to the Clocktower Centre for the 5/6’s last cabaret at this school, Almost Alice.

We had two shows, the Matinee and the Evening performance. I arrived at 5:40 for a 7 o’clock start. We got our hair and makeup done by Jess, Esther’s sister Anya and Anya’s friend. When I had finished I went downstairs to wait in the wings because I was the narrator.

Finally it started!The theatre was packed, not one seat empty. I walked out to the podium and began my story before 5/6 B’s performance- Alice in the Sky with Diamonds.

This repeated for the entire show- me, item, me, item, me, item- with Alice, the Cheshire Cat, Alice’s sister, the Mouse and the Rabbit talking occasionally. My favourite items were the preps, 5/6 C- ugly heart, and, of course, ours! No, I’m only joking. But we did a mash-up of ‘I’m Ready’ by AJR, ‘Heart and Soul’ by Built by Titan, and ‘Magic’ by B.o.B- which was really fun to dance to!

The ‘surprise item’ by the  was ‘Live Louder’ by Nathaniel. It was very exciting to watch!

But unfortunately it had to end. I went out on the stage and said my last line before our finale, ‘Happy’ by Pharell Williams!

Well, that was it, my last ever cabaret at MPPS, and I’m sure I won’t forget it anytime soon.

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

I’m high, high in the air,

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

I have no despair,

…Fly…Fly…Fly…

As I am a Superb Fairy Wren.

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

No enemies can find me then.

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

As I drop my eggs far from my nest,

… Fly… Fly … Fly…

I am far more clever than the rest,

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

So take that, cats.

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

You can swing your little bats,

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

But you and your friend can never find me.

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

As I am, by far, smarter than you and he.

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

So you may as well give up,

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

Or you’ll be running, hup hup hup.

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

You gingery little beasts,

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

You won’t be able to find me, once I fly east.

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

Hee hee hee hee hee.

… Fun … Fun … Fun…

Ha ha ha ha ha.

… Fun … Fun … Fun…

Ho ho ho ho ho.

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

Again im extremely high,

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

High, high, in the sky,

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

So you might want to leave,

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

As I’m high, high high in a tree,

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

Totally out of your league,

… Fly … Fly … Fly…

Oh, nooooooooooOO!

… Fall … Fall … Fall…

 

 

…Meep…Meep…Meep…

Beaming orange starfish, crossed eyes staring at me.

…Meep…Meep…Meep…

Ocean waves lapping against the shore, can I take you home?

…Meep…Meep…Meep…

Dim autumn light, orange darkness creeping upon the sea reflection.

…Meep…Meep…Meep…

Has anyone ever seen a starfish as cute as you?

…Meep…Meep…Meep…

Desire, joyful, happiness.

…Meep…Meep…Meep…

…Fun…Fun…Fun…(6 Room Poem)

…Fun…Fun…Fun…

Bright summer light,dimmed through the leaves.

My neighbours on the ropes, tied to the trees.

Birds chirping, us talking, Owen calling its afternoon tea time.

…Fun…Fun…Fun…

I’m so exited I get to eat cake.Will I ever get neighbours like this again? I wonder what else is to eat?

…Fun…Fun…Fun…
