Dirty Jerma

By Lincy Achieng

Dirty Jerma look at you

With dirty face and dress

Do you ever wash at all?

You really look a mess

Dirty Jerma look at you

Your teeth are green and black

You never trim your fingernails

Is it soap you lack?

Dirty Jerma don’t you know

That dirt will make you ill?

You really need to change your ways

But I’m not sure you will
