Silly Poems and Rhymes #77 – Jack Sprat
Jack Sprat could eat no fat,His wife could eat no lean,And so it was between them both,They licked their platters clean. Thanks to Peter G Millington-Wallace for the reminder.
Silly Poems and Rhymes #76 – When I die
When I was young I had a dream,I dreamt of worlds I had not seen. I dreamt I travelled in a beamOf light that shone both blue and green.Now I grow old I swear that IWill travel that way when I die.
Silly Poems and Rhymes #75 – The Camel
The sexual life of the camel,
Is stranger than anyone thinks.
This weird and mysterious animal,
Has designs upon the Sphinx.
Silly Poems and Rhymes #74 – The boy
The boy stood in the supper-room
Whence all but he had fled;
He’d eaten seven pots of jam
And no amount of bread.
Silly Poems and Rhymes #73 – The Snowball
I made myself a snowballAs perfect as can be.I thought I’d keep it as a pet,And let it sleep with me.I made it some pyjamasAnd a pillow for its head.Then last night it ran away,But first – It wet the bed.
