My Daughter’s Favourite Book

I grabbed my daughter’s favourite book
A book about dinosaurs
She holds it every night to sleep
A book she just adores

As I flipped the very first page
Guess what did I see
The beasts therein all came to life
And jumped on top of me

They looked at me with giant eyes
I looked back with fear
I yelled and screamed like a little girl
As my demise grew near

Hearing me my girl came running
Grabbed the book from me
Instructed the giant dinosaurs
— Let the old man be

They all paid obeisance to her
Ere retreating in the book
I got myself up from the floor
With a pitiful look

Like nothing had ever happened
My daughter jumped on the bed
Fell to sleep holding that eerie book
Left me scratching my head


My English teacher taught me WORDS = SWORD
My Science teacher told me HEART = EARTH
My Geometry teacher told me TRIANGLE = INTEGRAL
My Philosophy teacher told me DEATH = HATED
My Geography teacher told me NIGER = REIGN
My Music teacher told me LISTEN = SILENT
And now I cannot go home until I find one for STUDENT

Why Do The Clouds Cry So Often?

Why do the clouds cry so often?
Can somebody go and stop them?
Look what they’ve done to my clothes

My clothes get wet and I get sick
From the constant tears they leak
When will they stop? Nobody knows

I need to meet a special friend
The clouds keep crying for hours on end
Even I am dripping from my nose

You naughty clouds you’ve made me cry
I’m late again despite my tries
That’s just how life goes I suppose

Mean Eleanor

There’s a bully in my school
Her name’s Eleanor
Mean, fat and ugly
She’s a devil for sure

She pushes me around
Gives wounds to my skin
When I sit and cry
I can see her grin

She always takes my lunch
Dim-witted Eleanor
But from today I say
She’ll bully me no more

I have made a sandwich
Mixed with slimy bugs
Found them in my garden
Snails, beetles, ants and slugs

Jessie comes and tells me
That today is a good day
Eleanor’s not come to school
Much to my dismay
