Meister Twinkle, Eardrum Engineer

We arrived home safely from our flight to Germany! Matty slept right through takeoff and landing, so did not have any problems with he sudden changes in air pressure. Unfortunately for the parents in the row in front of us, some babies were not quite as lucky. Here's a little poem I wrote following our flight. Enjoy. And Happy New Year!

Meister Twinkle, Eardrum Engineer

by Becca Brown

A man named Meister Twinkle works
Inside my inner ear.
He took the job when I was born
As eardrum engineer.

He opens up a special tube,
And ear air circulates.
He can’t take any breaks because
An ear ache emanates.

Twinkle is reliable,
But awfully scared of heights.
On plane trips he prefers to doze
And dream throughout the flights!

So this is why my ears hurt when
We fly - it’s rather steep.
My ear tube doesn’t open up
‘Cause guess-who’s fast asleep!
