My cousin traced an ancestor
right down the family tree;
amazing where we come from,
my Mom, my sibling and me.
Do you believe we all are kindred
to the twin sister of Fred
and Fred was the fond parent
of Ed, who's a long time dead.
Fred's grandfather, Robert,
had a niece with hair quite red.
I'm having a little chuckle,
but really, couldn't care less!
I'm leaving it all to be sorted
by my daughter and heiress.
