Six Swedish Fish

Sherri Schnelling shares seven shiploads of Swedish fish with her stepsister, shallow, shoddy Shelly.

With little shame, Shelly shockingly sent six of the shipments of the Swedish fish to Sherri’s second step-father, shady , One Shoe Shaky Sherman Shilling.

Sharp-eyed, shy Sherri, no longer sheepish,  was sad with shortsighted Shelly since she showed no shame.

Sherri knew it was shady business and demanded six hundred and fifty-seven shillings for the shipments of Swedish fish.

From that day, shrewd Sherri shunned shyster Sherry and sisters they were no more.

A Tongue Twister poem is made up of lines/versus that are hard to say when read aloud by using similar consonant sounds in succession (use of alliteration).  In other words, the poem ties your tongue into knots.  This form-does not require end or internal rhyme.
