Chicken Pox Connect-the-Dots

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I got a case of chicken pox.
My skin was strewn with spots.
And so I grabbed a marker
and I played connect-the-dots.

I started on my pinky toes.
The lines went up my feet,
Around my ankles, shins and knees,
and right across on my seat.

They circled ’round my belly-button,
outward toward my hips,
then up my chest, around my neck,
and past my chin and lips.

The lines continued on my ears,
my eyebrows, cheeks and nose,
then out my arms and in again
and downward to my toes.

I ran and got a mirror,
and I smiled as I was seeing,
by linking all the dots
I’d drawn a 3-D human being.
