Finish This Poem – “Dream”

I dreamed about a burglar
Who only took my eggs.
I dreamed I was a mer-man
With fins instead of legs.
I dreamed I was a soldier
Who fought a snowball war;
I dreamed I was a gangster
Who left to study law.

I dreamed I was a robot
I dreamed I was a lark.
I dreamed I was a puppy
Who’d talk instead of bark.
I dreamed I was Australian—
A hopping kangaroo;

Finish This Poem – “Barking”

There’s a dog around the corner and he barks all night and day.
His owners will not listen to a single word I say.
It’s stopping me from sleeping and it’s ruining my mood;
I think it’s time his owners got told off or even sued.

Now I can be vindictive when I’m bitter or I’m mad.
I thought of a solution fixing all the qualms I had.
I went up to their canine and I whispered in his ear,
“…”

Finish This Poem – “Lunch”

I sit with all my colleagues
Each afternoon at one.
We show what’s in our lunchbox
It’s quite a lot of fun.
A weekly social catch-up
It always lifts my mood;
The problem is, they always point
And snicker at my food.

See, Rachel, she brings bento
And Mark brings peas and rice.
And Lewis? He brings tacos
All loaded up with spice.
I don’t know why they laugh at ME,
The food I bring is great:

Finish This Poem – “Grandma’s Birthday”

Next week is Grandma’s birthday.
I thought I’d buy a horse.
She loves a lot of creatures
She’d love this too, of course.
It turns out they’re expensive,
I had to change my mind,
But what I bought her’s BETTER,
I think that’s what you’ll find.

Next week is Grandma’s birthday,
At first I’d no idea.
But then—a thought just struck me—
I’ll buy her lots of beer!
Alas, she doesn’t drink it,
My thought was not so great.
Besides, I cannot buy it,
Because I’m only eight.

Next week is Grandma’s birthday
And though I am quite poor,
I tipped out my whole piggy bank
Onto my bedroom floor.
Eleven dollars fifty,
I counted it with glee,
So guess what I got Grandma?!
