Poem 49 – “Why Does Everybody Gotta Be So Cruel?”

Standard

“Why Does Everybody Gotta Be So Cruel?” by Jaymie Gerard

 

Peter called Petunia a pickled poopy pie

So Petunia stuck her tongue at him until it made him cry

Sandra told Steven he smelled like rotten cheese

So Steven sprinkled pepper next to Sarah ‘til she sneezed

Markus called Maria a mangy monster mutt

So Maria put a “kick me” sign on Markus’s butt

Devon told me that I look like drool –

Why does everybody gotta be so cruel?

Day 38 – “What Makes a Friend?”

Standard

“What Makes a Friend?” by Jaymie Gerard

 

 

 

 

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s bold?

Who’s sparkly as diamonds

And shiny as gold?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s brave?

Who could fight off a dragon

Deep in a cave?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s smart?

Who’s a whiz in mathematics

And science and art?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone you’d trust?

Who would bury your secrets

Under the dust?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s strong?

Who could carry a tree for you

Fifteen feet long?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s fast?

Who’d stay behind with you

So you won’t be last?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone bighearted?

Who’d give you the last bite

Of cake he had started?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who cares?

Who, if you were crying,

You know would be there?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s funny?

Who does silly things

Like dancing in honey?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s cool?

Who likes to dress funky

And makes her own rules?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s good?

Who does the right thing

Just like he should?

 

What makes a friend?

Is it someone who’s happy?

Who’s skippy and bouncy

And flippy and flappy?

 

What makes a friend

Who’s forever and true?

It’s someone quite special –

Someone just like you!
