Poem from Jelly Boots Smelly Boots by Michael Rosen

Imagine if your nails are nails

so every time they get long

you hammer them in a bit to make them short.


                                          Imagine if your sink stinks

                                          so every time you have a wash

                                          it gets lower and lower.


Imagine if your painting does painting

so every time you look at it

you can see the painting painting itself.


                                           Imagine if a letter is a letter

                                           so every time a letter arrives in the morning

                                           you open it up

                                           and all there is in it is the letter 'a'

                                           or the letter 'q'.


Imagine if the stars are stars

so every time you look up at the sky at night

all you can see are famous people from the movies.
