My Brother Might Be Bigfoot by Kenn Nesbitt

My brother might be bigfoot.
I’ve seen a bunch of clues.
He’s very hairy, super tall,
and wears enormous shoes.

Whenever I say hi to him
my brother starts to growl.
He walks like a gorilla
and his stink is awfully foul.

He never takes a shower so
he’s slovenly and sweaty.
He claims to have a girlfriend too;
he says her name is Yeti.

He’s not a myth. From what I’ve seen
I think we can assume
that bigfoot lives among us…
He’s in my brother’s room.
