Fun Poetry
By Kenn Nesbitt

-------------------------------------------------
Get Up! Get Up!

"Get up! Get up! Get out of bed
you lazy bum, you sleepyhead."
Yes, that is what my mother said
at eight-oh-five today.

She left the house and drove to work.
She'll soon be feeling like a jerk
when she finds out -- I have to smirk --
today is Saturday.

-------------------------------------------------
My Penmanship is Pretty Bad

My penmanship is pretty bad.
My printing's plainly awful.
In truth, my writing looks so sad
it ought to be unlawful.

I try but, still, I must confess
my writing looks like scribbles.
My pencil makes a painful mess.
My ballpoint leaks and dribbles.

My letters take up so much space
they nearly can't be read.
The ones that should be lowercase
are capitals instead.

My p's and q's and r's and b's
are backward half the time.
When letters look as bad as these
it's probably a crime.

My cursive's utter lack of style
will make you want to curse.
But, even so, I have to smile;
my teacher's writing's worse.

-------------------------------------------------
Peter Passed a Note Today

Peter passed a note today.
He gave the note to Anna.
She opened it and read it,
then she passed it on to Hannah.

The note made Hannah giggle
so she handed it to Cody,
who read it with a smile before
he slid the note to Brody.

Then Brody read the contents
and he gave it to Luann,
who opened it and chuckled
and directed it to Dan.

He read it with a snicker,
then he tossed the note to Jon
who couldn't help but chortle
as he passed it on to Sean.

The teacher heard us laughing
and she saw what Sean was holding.
She walked across the room
and took the note he was unfolding.

We thought we'd get in trouble,
but she gave it back to Sean
and smiled because it read,
"The teacher's awesome. Pass it on."
