I Bought a Maserati
A Funny Car Poem for KidsRate this poem
From the book My Hippo Has the Hiccups
I bought a Maserati
and a new Mercedes-Benz,
plus a brand new Lamborghini
I could show off to my friends.
I purchased a Ferrari
and an Aston Martin too,
and a Porsche and a Jaguar
and a BMW.
I had them all delivered
to my mansion in the hills.
I like to sit and look at them,
imagining the thrills.
For though it’s fun to be
the richest nine-year-old alive,
I’m sure I’ll like it better
when I’m old enough to drive.
