Marty’s World: Meet Adam


My father’s called Adam
and he’s very tall.
So tall that beside him
I look very small!
He enjoys telling jokes
and he loves silly puns,
We laugh – or we cringe –
and it’s really such fun!

My dad’s a great cook
and I love what he bakes:
the best apple crumble
and coconut cake.
When it comes to our chores,
here’s what he’ll tell:
“If a job is worth doing,
it’s worth doing well.”

We’ve heard this a million times,
if not more.
So Edmund and I
must always make sure
we’ve done all our work,
and checked how it’s done,
then we can go out
and play in the sun.
