Cousins

By Matt Goodfellow

cousin Tim
massive grin

cousin Rose
picks her nose

cousin Steve
dirty knees

cousin Nina
such a dreamer

cousin Bertie
getting shirty

cousin Sita
noisy eater

cousin Paul
rather tall

cousin Flora
sofa-snorer

cousin Sal
my best pal

cousin Claire
crazy hair

cousins cousins
everywhere
