Solomon Sneezes

(excerpt)

Solomon Snorkel has such a big sneeze,

he can blow all the leaves off

the sycamore trees.

He can empty the beehives of all of the bees.

That’s what Solomon’s sneezes can do.

***

Solomon Snorkel has such a large sneeze,

he can knock several skiers

right out of their skis.

He can break open locks,

so he doesn’t need keys.

That’s what Solomon’s sneezes can do.
