Peresh and Sheresh were brothers

Descendants of Manasseh

14 "The descendants of Manasseh through his Aramean concubine included Asriel. She also bore Makir, the father of Gilead. 15 Makir found wives for[c] Huppim and Shuppim. Makir had a sister named Maacah. One of his descendants was Zelophehad, who had only daughters.
16 Makir’s wife, Maacah, gave birth to a son whom she named Peresh. His brother’s name was Sheresh. The sons of Peresh were Ulam and Rakem. 17 The son of Ulam was Bedan. All these were considered Gileadites, descendants of Makir son of Manasseh.
18 Makir’s sister Hammoleketh gave birth to Ishhod, Abiezer, and Mahlah.
19 The sons of Shemida were Ahian, Shechem, Likhi, and Aniam."

It is not polite to make fun of people's names.

So, with my apologies, I am going to do just that...

Manasseh had a girlfriend
It happens now as well.
They done had a baby
His name was Asriel

Couldn't call him Israel
That name already taken
So what to call this little guy
Asriel is what was shakin

A second little guy popped out
This one they called him Makir
He said one day with a shout
That woman's mine, I'll take her!

Makir got legit and married
Not like his old man
Had two boys, Huppim and Shuppim
Found them wives bim bam

What could Makir do for Sis?
Who's name was Maa - ca -h(a)
She wanted sum a dat wedded bliss
But Makir couldn't make ha.

So a grandson named Zelophehad
Couldn't have any boys
He kept on saying "He wished he had"
But kept buying dolls as toys.

Makir's wife was Maacah two
And they had two more boys
One "if you don't obey - you'll Peresh"
Two "I'll spank you if you don't Sheresh"

This story I'm telling goes on and on
Makirs sis was called Hammoleketh
Her kid Mahlah composed a song
Its name was "Now I'm Done With Eth"
