Poem of the Week 88

I Met a Dragon Face to Face

Jack Prelutsky

 

I met a dragon face to face

the year when I was ten,

I took a trip to outer space,

I braved a pirate’s den,

I wrestled with a wicked troll,

and fought a great white shark,

I trailed a rabbit down a hole,

I hunted for a snark.

 

I stowed aboard a submarine,

I opened magic doors,

I travelled in a time machine,

and searched for dinosaurs,

I climbed atop a giant’s head,

I found a pot of gold,

I did all this in books I read

when I was ten years old.

Poem of the Week 27

Spaghetti! Spaghetti!

Jack Prelutsky

 

Spaghetti! Spaghetti!

you’re wonderful stuff,

I love you spaghetti,

I can’t get enough,

You’re covered with sauce

and you’re sprinkled with cheese,

Spaghetti! Spaghetti!

Oh, give me some please.

 

Spaghetti! Spaghetti!

piled high in a mound,

you wiggle, you wriggle,

you squiggle around.

There’s slurpy spaghetti

all over my plate.

Spaghetti! Spaghetti!

I think you are great.

 

Spaghetti! Spaghetti!

I love you a lot,

you’re slishy, you’re sloshy,

delicious and hot,

I gobble you down

oh, I can’t get enough,

Spaghetti! Spaghetti!

you’re wonderful stuff.

Poem of the Week 05

Homework! Oh, Homework!

 Jack Prelutsky

 

Homework! Oh, Homework!

I hate you! You stink!

I wish I could wash you away in the sink,

if only a bomb would explode you to bits.

Homework! Oh, homework!

You’re giving me fits.

 

I’d rather take baths with a man-eating shark,

or wrestle a lion alone in the dark,

eat spinach and liver,

pet ten porcupines,

than tackle the homework,

my teacher assigns.

 

Homework! Oh, homework!

you’re last on my list,

I simple can’t see why you even exist,

if you just disappeared it would tickle me pink.

Homework! Oh, homework!

I hate you! You stink!
