Poor Melvin

by cricketjeff on September 9, 2007.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

Melvin is not eating dinner
Melvin thinks he should be thinner
Melvin goes to work by bike
Melvin does things he does not like
All because his clothes are tight
Melvin tries to make things right

When a dragon puts on weight
His flying skills are not that great
So he has to work off steam
Must not eat too much ice-cream
Melvin thinks life is not fair
Why should other dragons care
It is not his fault he is fat and blue
I like Melvin this way, do you?

Author notes

There are several other Melvin poems on my page, I would hope a six year old would like any of them.
