My Hippo Has the Hiccups by Kenn Nesbitt

This poem is from the book My Hippo Has the Hiccups. I really liked it. My brothers should take note…

Don’t Ever Bite Your Sister

Don’t ever bite your sister.
Don’t kick her in the shin.
Don’t slap your sister silly
and don’t sock her in the chin.

Don’t tape a “Kick Me” poster
upon your sister’s back.
Don’t take your stinky socks off
and then put them in her pack.

Don’t purchase plastic spiders
and place them on her head.
Don’t leave your rubber rattlesnake
inside your sister’s bed.
Don’t do this to your sister
for, if you ever do,
I’m pretty sure she may do something
even worse to you.
