A Rainy Day Poem

by Joshuas Siegal

Go tickle the camel
Right between her toe
Give the clam a kiss or two
Slurp a fish taco

Bite a drippy jelly roll
But nibble nice and soft
Invite a purring pussycat
To sleep up in your loft

Lick a little button
And stick it to your face
Paint a fingerpainting
In not-so-still-life ways

Have a bite of snapper
Travel to the south
Practice saying all your “L”s
Without your roof of mouth

Any of these silly things
Are awful fun to do
On days when rain is making wet
A special friend and you
