Poetry Friday

You can read more about Poetry Friday here at Chicken Spaghetti.

I'm going to recommend a book that was a gift to the kids several years ago from my brother and sister-in-law. It's called Polka-Bats and Octopus Slacks, by Calef Brown. It has lovely, funny illustrations for each poem. Here's the author's site.

One poem is "Georgie Spider," which starts with:
Georgie Spider catches flies
but never eats the little guys.
Instead he cooks up insect pies.

Another is "Kansas City Octopus," with:
Kansas City Octopus
is wearing fancy slacks.
just got 'em,
fifty bucks including tax.

You'll have to get the book to read more!
