TITLE: LITTLE GERMS EVERYONE

It’s amazing what one little germ may do
To cause such a plague of disaster, ‘tis true
I was the first to come in with much crying
I’m sure that my folks thought they were dying

But just as they trained me to sleep in my bed
Along came my sister, feet first so they said
Though she came in backwards she righted herself
She was cute and cuddly a round little elf

Things were going along well with just siblings two
But Mom got the idea she wanted a few
“All is going well, Mom, what are you thinking?”
As I looked in her cup to see what she’d been drinking

Here came my brother according to plan
He was big and red like a little old man
Things became crowed with siblings of three
Why on earth they did that is quite beyond me!

Oh little germs how they multiply
They are sticky and smelly, I say with a sigh
They’re noisy and worse, they mess with my stuff
I’ve just about had it as I yell, “Enough!”

The world has not stopped with siblings of three
But please let this be all if you’re asking me
And just as things were settling down
Mom made an announcement, which put me to frown

The fourth came into the world rather plain
I now know my mother is really insane
Burping and spit up with real stinky messes
Mom said this is just as the Lord my God blesses

She smiled with each child and called us her germs
I discerned no compassion for such are just worms
“Not GERMS,” she said laughing as if to make fun
I call you my little GEMS each and everyone!

Well rhymed.
So creative and cute.

Germs...how fun!

I like how you put this message into verse, and also enjoyed the humour and the resolution.

So cute and fun to read! The title caught my eye and did a good job showing the view of a growing family through the eyes of the oldest sibling.

This is a fun, sweet sibling poem. I had to smile at your use of "germs" (with the gem/germ confusion :) ) and "I now know my mother is really insane." ;) I think you've accurately written a childs thoughts on the arrival of siblings. :) Good work on this poem.
