"My Normal Family"


My daddy snores and sucks his toes.
My brother likes to lick his nose.
My doggy meows, my kitten barks.
My goldfish chases sticks in parks.
My sister walks while upside down.
My mother hops all over town.
Her skin is purple, don’t you know.
And I am green from head to toe.
My dad is red, my sister’s blue.
My brother’s yellow; yes, it’s true.
We all wear raincoats in the sun
And gobble lima beans for fun.
We’re very special, can’t you see?
We’re just a normal family!
