Poetry month

Peter, Peter, Sugar Eater

by Bruce Lansky
Peter, Peter, sugar eater,
always wanted food much sweeter.
Adding sugar was a blunder.
Now he is a toothless wonder.

Blow Your Nose!
by Bruce Lansky
Little Boy Blue
please blow your nose.
It drips like a faucet
and sprays like a hose.
Your brother and sister
are getting upset,
so please blow your nose-
'cause you're getting them wet!

Little Miss Muffet
by Bruce Lansky
Little Miss Muffet
sat on a tuffet
eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider
who sat down beside her.
And since she was still hungry, she ate the spider, too.

London Bridge
by Bruce Lansky
London Bridge is falling down,
falling down, falling down.
There's no way to walk to town.
Take the ferry.

Mary Had a Little Jam
by Bruce Lansky
Mary had a little jam;
she spread it on a waffle.
And if she hadn't eaten ten,
she wouldn't feel so awful.

Yankee Doodle in Paris
by Bruce Lansky
Yankee Doodle went to France,
With his golden VISA.
But he could not afford to buy
Da Vinci's Mona Lisa.
