In the Wickywaks World
on a day with a breeze,
Kallie got caught
on the edge of a sneeze.

The sneeze would start up
but would not follow through.
She could "ah, ah" all day,
but she just couldn't "choo".

Kallie felt the sneeze stirring
and churning inside.
Her nose remained crinkled
and her eyes stayed half wide.

So she asked her friend Chessie,
"Do you know of a cure?"
And Chessie replied,
"Oh sure, Kallie, sure."

Then she ran to her kitchen
for the kindest of deeds.[IMAGE]
"A shaker of pepper -
that's all Kallie needs."
