My Smart Family by Kenn Nesbitt

My family drives a smart car.
We watch a smart TV.
The phones we use are smartphones.
We’re smart as we can be.

We live inside a smart home
with smart appliances,
which makes us smart at math and art
and all the sciences.

I like to wear a smartwatch
to track my health and heart.
I shouldn’t have to go to school
since I’m already smart.

I asked to stay at home.
I figured, why not take a chance?
My dad just frowned and told me,
“Don’t be such a smarty-pants.”

“But Dad,” I said, “it’s clear that
my IQ is off the charts.”
My dad was quick with his reply
and — ouch! — it really smarts!
