After many dark days, the Hunger Games came,
the Districts' rebellion is what you can blame.
From the ruins of the US, Panem came alive,
it was a country where families had to struggle to survive.
A fifteen year old girl named Katniss,
lived in a world filled with reminisce.
The Mayor and Ms. Trinket picked two names,
a boy and a girl for the Hunger Games.
As Effie Trinket said "It's a big, big day,"
The tributes started to feel like her prey.
Everyone froze and held their breath,
because they knew what was coming; it was death.
Getting picked is what Katniss feared,
as the day came closer, a nightmare appeared.
Pulling out the girl's name, Effie said,
"Primrose Everdeen!" That's what she read.
As Effie said the name, "Primrose Everdeen,"
a hunter and a sister couldn't process the scene.
That girl was the fifteen year old girl named Katniss,
the girl who lived in a world filled with reminisce.
Before Prim could go, Katniss volunteered,
families were relieved, but nobody cheered.
Next was the boys turn to get chosen,
getting picked was like drinking poison.
Peeta Mellark was the name that came out,
not many people knew what he was about.
He looked brave, but was he afraid?
Would someone run to his needing aid?
As they rode to the capitol by train,
Katniss had a lot of emotion to contain.
She remembered when Peeta gave her bread,
even though it caused him such dread.
As they reached their final destination,
everyone felt anticipation.
Peeta and Katniss were "star-crossed lovers,"
to get attention from advertisers.
With help from Cinna and his stylist team,
Katniss became the capitols dream.
With help from Portia and her stylist crew,
Peeta became the capitols dream too.
As everyone practiced and trained and ate,
they wondered what will come to be their fate.
As they finally went in to play,
some were the predators, some were the prey.
Out of twenty-four, eleven died,
it was the first day, families cried.
As the games went on, the death toll increased,
and the number of people to die decreased.
Then they were told, two people can win and survive,
but from the same district to come out alive.
When Peeta and Katniss were the final two,
they were told: only one can pass through.
So they both threatened to die,
but the capitol gave in, and let them both by.
Because of this stunt, they're now both in trouble,
and the price to pay is now double.
In the next 2 books, lots of people die
and there's more than meets the eye.
There's a lot of spine-chilling action,
and it will be to your satisfaction.
