Happy Times


You have got my face
Got my nose got my body, curves
And curls
And still you adored for the cuter one
It’s unfair but I don’t care
Once I know we are having fun
Popcorn to the movies
Sister Sister at the schoolies
The call us double, call us twin
All the games they say you win
Am just glad to tag along
Once I know we are having fun
You do the talking
I will do the smiling
After school when we are liming
I don’t have to think I am always time out
While you plan our whereabouts
Sister Sister Dance’s poses and the rhyming
My head in a book
You give me that look
Yet you are always the one to ace that science test
When we are going out you already picked out my clothes
Brushed my hair rearranged my curls
And everywhere I go people call out our names
I owe you big for this exciting fame
Same eyes, same clothes, same look, same pose
Pairing off playing love
Doing switching tricks on stupid boys
Arm in arm we leave the school
Those school days were really cool

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
