Poem – Shy Mole

There once was a mole named Larry

Who wasn’t very hairy

His skin was pink

So he started to stink

And his friends all moved away


My son has a book by Jack Prelutsky called: The New Kid on the Block.

While I was reading it I thought up this poem.  

Here’s an example of one of his poems.

Be Glad Your Nose is on Your Face by Jack Prelutsky

Be glad your nose is on your face,

not pasted on some other place,

for if it were where it is not,

you might dislike your nose a lot.

Imagine if your precious nose

were sandwiched in between your toes,

that clearly would not be a treat,

for you’d be forced to smell your feet.

Your nose would be a source of dread

were it attached atop your head,

it soon would drive you to despair,

forever tickled by your hair.

Within your ear, your nose would be

an absolute catastrophe,

for when you were obliged to sneeze,

your brain would rattle from the breeze.

Your nose, instead, through thick and thin,

remains between your eyes and chin,

not pasted on some other place–

be glad your nose is on your face!
