    A theme of Lucille Clifton's "good times" is that (10 points) life is transient. ingrained habits can be given up. motherhood sometimes has more frustrations than rewards. being poor can be frustrating. being the oldest child sometimes carries more family responsibilities. think its choice one or four

    think about it, my daddy has paid the rent....and the lights is back on So this means that her dad (and her family) couldn't afford to pay the rent or the electric bill, so they went without lights for some time. My guess is that the rent was a priority over the electric bill so they weren't evicted. then her dad paid both, and the lights were finally turned back on

    yes, esp when you can't afford the basics like lighting or food (look at the line "my mama has made bread" and she says it's a good time, so something as simple as bread is a miracle...which means they couldn't even afford bread)

    and and my uncle brud has hit for one dollar straight means that her uncle has gambled to get more money (at least I think it does, but not 100% sure)

    thanks and i think this is second choice or fourth choice Stanza 2 (10 points) states the causes for celebration. presents the celebration. instructs the children to think about the good times. both the first and second choices above none of the above

    it's not "instructs the children to think about the good times." because that's stanza 3 stanza 3 is oh children think about the good times

    I'd say it's either A or B since they're very similar, it could be both A and B (which would make it D)

    but those answers made the most sense (wouldn't you agree?), so maybe there's a typo? I'd ask your teacher
