My sister’s pretty picky

My sister’s pretty picky.
She likes to pick a fight.
She always wants to pick the film
on family movie night.

She picks her teeth with toothpicks.
She’s skilled at picking locks.
She picks her Minecraft pickaxe
to pick away at blocks.

She’s always picking flowers.
She picks on her guitar.
She’s even picky when she’s
picking out a candy bar.

I only wish that, now and then,
she might pick up her clothes.
I also wish she wasn’t
quite so picky with her nose.
