Bruce Lansky, “The King of Giggle Poetry,” visited Ashley Elementary School in New Baltimore, MI on February 23rd – 24th, 2009. Here are some of the fun poems they wrote together…


 

A poem by Mrs. Kirchoff’s and Ms. Rossi’s classes:


Rules for My Dog

Don’t lick on my face.
Don’t mess up the rug.
Don’t bite my neck when
I give you a hug.

Don’t fight with your brother
‘cause that isn’t nice.
Don’t scratch when you’re near me,
‘cause you’ll give me lice.

Don’t bark in the evening
when I’m fast asleep.
I don’t want to wake up
when I’m counting sheep.

Don’t jump up on me when
I walk through the door,
‘cause you’ll scratch my pants
and my legs will get sore.

I wrote down these rules.
I’d hoped they’d be followed.
He thought it was homework.
He chewed it and swallowed.
