Mom’s friends have really unusual names.

Judy Nextdoor is neat.

Then there’s Judy Debbiessister

And Judy Acrossthestreet.


Caroline Cassandra Tate

Doesn’t know about paying bills

Or about the cost of real estate.

She wants to move to Beverly Hills.

She’d like a maid and a swimming pool,

A pony, a mansion, a Jaguar.

Caro thinks that it would be cool

To live the life of a movie star.

Well, to Grandy, it wasn’t funny.

(She hates to see a bubble burst.)

She said, “Well, Honey, save your money

And finish kindergarten first.”


When I sneezed, “ACHOO!”,

Tess said, “God bless YOU!”

Then I sneezed and sneezed again.

She blessed, I sneezed.

She blessed, I sneezed.

She stared at me and then

She said,  “I’m going to go and play.

I can’t keep blessing YOU all day!”


Jackson Boyd got so annoyed

When his parents wouldn’t agree with him

About the choice of the baby’s name.

(They named him “James” and

They’ll call him “Jim”).

Jack had made it very plain

That his brother’s name should be “Bruce Wayne”

Or “”Clark Kent.”


Herr Hinkel asked, “Sprechen Sie Deutsch?”

And he gave me a big wink so

I knew he wouldn’t be upset

When I said, “I don’t think so.”


Mark made potholders to sell

And to make his business thrive,

He sold one for fifteen cents

Or two for thirty-five.
