Life's Not Been The Same in My Family by Jack Prelutsky

Life's not been the same in my family
since the day that the new baby came,
my parents completely ignore me,
they scarcly remeber my name.
The baby gets all their attention,
"Oh, isn't she precious!" they croon,
they think she looks like an angel,
I think she resembles a prune.
They're thrilled when she giggles or gurgles,
"She burped!" they exclaim with delight,
they dont even mind when she wakes us
with deafening screams in the night.
They seem to believe she's a treasure,
there's simply no way I agree,
I wish she'd stop being a baby and start being older than me.
