Ticky Tacky

A poem for me. When I was little, I didn't like to take baths.

Icky yucky ticky tacky
When you wash don’t do my backie.
Icky yucky tacky ticky
Leave it nice and dirty sticky
Full of mushrooms,
Full of dirt,
Ticky tacky neath my shirt.
Wash my leg or wash my shoe,
Leave my backie full of goo.
