Happy Poetry Friday! I was feeling kind of mistake-y this week. Revisiting my mistakes, experiencing other people's tomfoolery, watching how one mistake can lead to another...which inspired this week's poem. (Is this a form you guys know? I am not sure whether I made it up or had already seen it somewhere.)
Hats by Marco
by Tabatha Yeatts
Sara labelled the hat the wrong size
And Ronald bought the hat
Ronald's new hat covered his eyes
And he walked into the cat
The cat jumped and ripped the screen door
And the dog ran outside
The barky dog woke Baby mid-snore
And Baby cried and cried
Her cries spooked a squirrel who raced
And roused a lazing snake
Snake hugged squirrel in a snug embrace...
All due to a hat mistake.
I'm going to take next week off for Thanksgiving, but I hope to still be able to visit some of y'all's blogs to say hi. Hope you have a warm and snuggly holiday! TeacherDance has the Poetry Friday round-up. Thanks, Linda!
P.S. I've enjoyed the Human Rights poems I've received very much. Please send yours in by November 30th.
