“Dare Not To Swear!”

Or you will get in

Swearing is

A bad thing

Double triple trouble!

“Dare Not To Swear” because you don’t have any hair

If you dare you’re eaten by a bear

“Dare Not To Swear” because West Hills are the bears.

We are smart over here.

If you’re walking by a Westie Bear you could even share

We’re the Westie Bears and we’re cool and fair.

If you dare

We share.

Westie Bears are cool

So come to school.

We’re the Westie Bears were cool and fair

We’re here to learn,

So we can earn.

It doesn’t make sense.

-Kim

I “Dare Not To Swear!”

I wonder why people swear.

It is a bad thing.

-Noriah

Don’t swear

Acting bad is bad

Respect others

Expel your swearing at home

Not okay to swear

Optimistic

To be in trouble is to swear

To be nice

Ok to be nice

Swearing is bad

When you swear you might get in trouble

Ignore the swearing

Arcade is for good kids

Reject swearing
