The Wild House
By Monyria Harvey
My brother is a dragon, my mom’s a teddy bear.
I’m a shaggy sheep dog with a ton of tangled hair.
My father is a monkey, he likes to make us laugh.
Especially my sister, she’s a tall giraffe.
We are a busy family with many things to do.
Our home is always happy, but sometimes it’s a zoo.
Me, I’m as quick as a cheetah,
My ears can hear like a rabbit,
Just like my teacher I am smart,
And everything comes from my heart.
My heart is as big as an elephant,
My nose can smell like a bear.
A warning to all who enter our zoo,
You will become an animal, too!
