The Sick Zebra

A zebra looked in the mirror one day His stripes were fading from black to green His eyes looked sallow and his stomach upset Like when he ate too much candy on Halloween He took some brown paint and covered his green stripes Remembering the color wheel from third grade art Brown plus green equals a return to black He looked in the mirror and said, “Gee whiz! I’m smart!” Written by Gwendolen Rix 5-20-14 For my grandson Sebastian
