What Next? - Poem by Hazel O'Dell

Timmy and Jim are brothers.
Jimmy is Timmy's twin.
Timmy looks like Jimmy
And Jimmy looks like him.

Jimmy lost his mittens.
Timmy lost his hat.
Timmy broke his pencil
And Jimmy broke his bat.

Jimmy cut his finger.
Timmy skinned his knees.
Jimmy cried in sorrow
When Timmy sat on a bee.

Jimmy sneezed and sniffled.
Timmy coughed and blew.
Two boys alike yet different
In everything they do.

And so through life they traveled
Taking all its bumps.
First Timmy had the measles.
Now Jimmy has the mumps.
