To My Granny

To My Granny
Sunny Cottage
Sleepy Drive
Backhomesville

Dear Granny,
Matthew’s got the measles,
Mandy’s got the mumps,
The sea is full of jellyfish,
My bed has got big lumps,
Mummy’s got a migraine,
The dog’s got a disease,
The car’s got a puncture,
And we’ve all got fleas,
This week has been the coldest
And the wettest of the year.
I think the tent is leaking.

P.S. Wish you were here.

I thought this was too cute not to share!
