TIGER

I’m a tiger

Striped with fur

Don’t come near

Or I might Grrr

Don’t I come near

Or I might growl

Don’t come near

Or I might

BITE!

Mary Ann Hoberman

 

KITTY

Look at pretty little Kitty

Gnawing on a bone!

How I wish she’d eat some fish

And leave my leg alone.

Doug MacLeod

  

THE TICKLE RHYME

“Who’s that tickling my back?” said the wall.

“Me,” said a small

Caterpillar. “I’m learning

To crawl.”

Ian Serraillier

 

Good luck!

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!
