A Glass Half Full of Stuff to Read

Cussin’ cousins like to swear

So much they suffocate the air

With sailor mouths so far out at sea

The air’s choked of any purity

 

Each other is their aunty’s child

And they really drive their uncles wild

By blaming each other’s father’s tongue

For teaching swear words to the young

 

And the aunts will never know where they heard

For the first time each carefully crafted curse word

Because it’s not cool to double-cross a cussin’ chum

Especially when it’s your mum’s mum!

Limericks

A girl who once chewed too much bubblegum

Found that her habit was troublesome

Blowing bubbles so bloated

She hovered then floated

To a space telescope – the Hubble one!

Featured Poem

Big T and the Piggies

Are a gang as tough as nails

Hairy and pink

They created a stink

And got themselves thrown in jail

 

Inside a one foot prison cell

Inside a cotton cage

Bound in leather

And tied with a knot

They were sentenced to sweat for an age

 

But now they’re free

They’re going to market

To fight a rival gang

On the mean streets

A pair of mean feet

Where Big T and the Piggies hang.
