Rhymetime

©1995 by Susan Noyes Anderson, Lollipops Magazine

Sometimes, when no one else can play

I make up silly rhymes to say,

like pink ink stinks and bugs hug rugs

and thugs lug buggy rugs away.

If flies buy pies and guys fly by,

what kind of world does that imply?

Would nine swine dine on porcupine

to stick a needle in their sty?

If bees’ knees freeze, then what of fleas?

Do fleas’ knees freeze as much as bees’?

How high the sky? Can dry eyes cry?

My head is buzzing. Tell me, please.

Once I begin, I must admit

it takes a bit of grit to quit.

That’s why I play rhymetime until

my mother has a fit. That’s it.

I've been writing rhyming poetry for nearly sixty years so I just loved this. Mine is not nearly so humorous! I think life jaded my sense of humor.

This is a fun one to share with kiddos.. You're so creative and you manage to entertain the old (me!) and the young...or maybe it's the young (me!) and the younger?!

You are so funny, honey!!

Darlene said...

I remember this one. You don't have to be a kid to enjoy it. No wonder it got published! I still don't understand how you found such perfect pictures to go with it, even though the "Mom" picture isn't quite "me" I never looked that good.

NanE said...

Fun post, thanks for sharing! Nan

Stef said...

Sue, I love your rhymes. They get my mental motor going. Also makes me realize that I need to be a less of a stick-in-the-mud.

So clever! Still chuckling over "nine swine dine on porucpine" :-)

myorii said...

Hehe, this is too cute :) Strangely enough, some of your rhymes did get me thinking about the randome things. Like do bees' have knees? Do they freeze? Hmmm...you definitely come up with some fun things to wonder about!
