The problem with younger siblings is

There’s always something them to teach

Like when I caught my little sister

Reaching in toilet, to get a drink.

 

It all started when we were outside

She tried to eat – a long muddy worm.

I scowled and said ‘What are you thinking?’

She said ‘Well, they’re good enough for birds!’

 

I said ‘You mustn’t; they are dirty,

They’ll continue to grow in your insides

Until they’re 6 foot and you are fifty

When they’ll finally crawl out your eyes!’

 

She didn’t like that much, so shifted

onto an ants nest to try them instead

But one stung her right on her finger

There’s a lesson that’ll stick in her head!

 

And so she ran off to the bathroom

Leant over toilet with glass in hand

About to drink a mouthful

Until I gave a loud command:

 

‘Stop – that toilet is dirty!

It’ll taste awfully sour’

 

She snapped ‘Mummy cleaned it this morning

Besides, it smells of lemon and flowers’

 

The problem with younger siblings is

They think that they know what’s best

As elder, I may not know all answers

But I’d surely do better in tests.
