2024 Year 6 Second Prize
Stamp. Stomp by Juno

Stamp, stomp, her feet hit the floor.
Stamp, stomp, "We're not having this anymore."

Stamp stomp, now five more feet.
Stamp, stomp turned to a thunderous beat.

Stamp, stomp, it now filled the room.
Stamp, stomp, not afraid of the broom.

Stamp, stomp, the broom he used to be hit,
Stamp stomp.
Now they weren't afraid of getting hurt.
Not one bit.
