imaginary family tree


..

my mama is a dragon,
my daddy is a ghost.
my brother is a mastodon
(and i love him the most.)

my sister is a mermaid,
my grammy is a cloud.
and have you met my grandpa?
he is 300 years old.

we’re one big happy family
with dozens of cousins, too.
we have fairies, sprites
and garden gnomes,
a sasquatch and a kazoo.

we’ve got unicorns and vampires,
two wizards and a wisp.
i think i may have lost count.
(it’s an exhaustive list.)

reunions are always quite the affair,
as we’re a colorful bunch.

won’t you join us, if you dare?
maybe we’ll have you (over) for lunch.

    Haha This was a fun one, De. I don’t think I’ll be available for lunch though. 🙂

    The Addams Family? They always reminded me of my family. Wonderful romp.
