Someone is in the bathtub
and I bet you'd never guess
it's a hippo in my bathtub
and she's causing quite a mess.
She's splashing out the water
and causing bathtub ring.
But the worst part
of a hippo in my bathtub
is the songs she tries to sing.
Oh, I had so much fun with today's poem. It got me to thinking about other animal poems I've written. I've had penguins driving cars, a flamingo on a skateboard, even a gorilla in my refrigerator. So, here is your poetry challenge today. Pick an animal. (I like to pick ones with interesting or amusing shapes.) Then put the animal in a setting. (I like to pick common place things. I've written poems about a snake at a birthday party and a mouse in my lunch box.) Now write a poem about what happens next. Have fun playing with yur animals and settings. Happy writing.
For more poetry fun, the Poetry Friday Roundup is being hosted today by Margaret Simon. Head over to Reflections On The Tech to join the party and read more fun poetry. Thank you, Margaret, for hosting us today.
