PAD 21 Response to another poem

Wastebasket Brother
Shell Silverstein

Someone put their baby brother
Under this basket- -
The question is exactly why,
But I'm not going to ask it.
But someone, I ain't sayin' who,
Has got a guilty face,
Ashamed for lettin' such a lovely brother
Go to waste. 

My response: Wastebasket Sister

If I were to put my sister
Under a basket
The question is exactly which one
You can ask it
Because I have four lovely sisters
I don’t have that many baskets
So I guess my sisters are safe
I don’t want to let my basket go to waste.
