My sister stinks! It’s downright sad
how anyone could smell so bad!
A stench so vile, I can’t believe it!
Her odor’s toxic! I must leave it!
I step outside for fresher air…
but I still smell it! That’s not fair!
I must go even further still,
and so I hike up Harper’s Hill.
But even at the highest peak –
I can’t escape my sister’s reek!
I hike back down and catch the bus –
the dreadful scent just follows us!
No matter what, no matter where,
my sister’s stinky stench is there!
As time goes on, it’s getting worse!
Oh, save me from this awful curse!
I trudge back home in sad defeat –
I’m worn out, wiped out, tired and beat!
I drag myself into the shower.
I stay in there for half an hour…
Halfway through, what’s this? Hooray!
My sister’s stench has gone away!
She must’ve finally got a clue,
and gone and had a shower too!
