“Sick” A Poem By Shel Silverstein

“I cannot go to school today,”
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
“I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.
My mouth is wet, my throat is dry,
I’m going blind in my right eye.
My tonsils are as big as rocks,
I’ve counted sixteen chicken pox
And there’s one more–that’s seventeen,
And don’t you think my face looks green?
My leg is cut–my eyes are blue–
It might be instamatic flu.
I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke,
I’m sure that my left leg is broke–
My hip hurts when I move my chin,
My belly button’s caving in,
My back is wrenched, my ankle’s sprained,
My ‘pendix pains each time it rains.
My nose is cold, my toes are numb.
I have a sliver in my thumb.
My neck is stiff, my voice is weak,
I hardly whisper when I speak.
My tongue is filling up my mouth,
I think my hair is falling out.
My elbow’s bent, my spine ain’t straight,
My temperature is one-o-eight.
My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear,
There is a hole inside my ear.
I have a hangnail, and my heart is–what?
What’s that? What’s that you say?
You say today is. . .Saturday?
G’bye, I’m going out to play!”

Silly Poems

Silly1.   snake1

There once was a snake,
Who wanted to bake a cake
But couldn’t,
So thought:
I want to shake hands,
With a rake!


One day,
a shell,
had fell,
so the near by bell,
just had to tell,
to the shell,
please be careful,
and please take these flowers,
which have a superb smell!


A pair of feet,
walked down the street,
and found a sweet sweet,
in a sheet,
but didn’t like it,
so continued to walk
and went to meet,
another pair of feet!


One day a male met a female,
Together took a ride on a whale,
But soon felt pale,
So got off the whale,
And read a tale!


Two mice,
Went to eat rice,
But the price was too high,
So instead,
Ate a cheese slice,
Which was delicious and nice!


A snail,
Went down a zigzag trail,
To find a blue pail,
But got pricked by a nail,
So went home,
To read her exciting mail!

SNOWBALL by Shel Siverstein

This is my pet – Snowball!

I made my self a snowball as perfect as could be. I thought I keep it as a pet and let it sleep with me. I made it some pajamas and a pillow for its head. But last night it ran away but first it wet the bed.
