Plot Description

Spoiler warning! This poem is spoken by Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker as they admire themselves on a hot summer’s day. Aunt Sponge thinks she looks and smells as lovely as a rose. “But don’t forget,” Aunt Spiker cried, “how much your tummy shows!” Aunt Spiker thinks she’s is more beautiful, but Aunt Sponge tells her she’s only bones and skin. Sponge thinks she belongs in Hollywood in the movies. “I think you’d make,” Aunt Spiker said, “a lovely Frankenstein.”
