Splosh, that hit me in the face,
Thwack, and in my belly!
Fizz, that took my wooly hat,
And dripped into my wellies!
Whoosh, hehe I got him back,
Oops! But that one's missed!
Now they're coming thick and fast,
Snowy balls as big as fists!
It must be time to call a truce,
Before I'm soaked right through!
My brother's just too good at this,
And my hands are turning blue!
But snowball fights are such good fun,
Even though it's cold and wet!
So just one more and here it goes,
Splat! I got him on his neck!
