funny poems :)

tori and i were looking through library books and we found some pretty funny ones about jellyfish and sardines. so we thought we'd share the love with all y'all! :):) (NOTE: must be read outloud for maximum enjoyment.)

LOVE SONG FOR A JELLY FISH by Sandra Hochman
How amazed I was, when I was a child,
To see your life on the sand.
To see you living in your jelly shape,
Round and slippery and dangerous.
You seemed to have fallen
Not from the rim of the sea,
But from the galaxies.
Stranger, you delighted me. Weird object of
The stinging world.

SARDINES by Spike Milligan
A baby Sardine
Saw her first submarine:
She was scared and watched through a peephole.
"Oh, come, come, come,"
Said the Sardine's mum,
"It's only a tin full of people."

You should look up "Sardins" by Shel Silverstein. That's a good one.
