About the Poem

As a Children's Author I related to my own childhood when writing this poem. It is basically a kid who is fantasizing about being an only child. The humor comes from my own experiences at the age of seven.

Sister For Sale

May I sell my sister in the yard sale?

'Cause she cries most of the time.

This is my chance to be an only child.

Do you think that's such a crime?

Can I sell my sister in the yard sale?

If I can't she's yours for free.

Just take her while she's a terrible two

And bring her back when she's three!
