The Old Man Of Peru

 There was an old man of Peru,

Who dreamt he was eating his shoe.

He woke in the night

In a terrible fright,

And found it was perfectly true.



No Harm Done

 As I went out

The other day,

My head fell off

And rolled away.


But when I noticed

It was gone,

I picked it up

And put it on.



Danger Game

 Jessica was playing

On the escalator.

When suddenly she tripped

And the escalator ate her!

 John Walsh


Good luck!
