The Fungus Family
By Nick Roes
My mom and dad watch over me.
And anyone can surely see,
I feel their strength from up above,
And bask in their undying love.
My papa heís a real big fella
Shaped just like a beach umbrella.
But heís so tall, just before bed
I pray no one steps on his head.
Momís tall, too; stands by his side,
So beautiful, I feel such pride.
But Iím afraid she looks so yummy
Sheíll end up in someoneís tummy.
I pray for them so they stay safe
While Iím away in school.
And hope the day will never come
Iím an orphan toadstool.
