It’s time for a bit of terrible poetry thanks to the wonderful Chelsea Owens and her weekly competition. This week the game is a foot with the following modus operandi…
- The Topic is the cute (or ‘cute’) things that kids say. I’ll admit I’m more inspired by the parenthetical version after our dinner conversations lately. What is it with young children (perhaps just with boys) and potty humor? Do they really think meals are the best place to discuss vomit?
- We’re talking kids here, so the Length may be quite short (barely learning to talk) or quite long (talks your ear off about Minecraft).
…Don’t make the judge suffer too much.
- Rhyming is optional, or entirely concerned with the word ‘fart.’
- It’s likely to not need much help in this department, but try to make it terrible. Make my young children giggle and start chanting lines from your poem whilst pointing at a brother in an insulting way.
- Kids sometimes say words they ought not to, but let’s keep the Rating an optimistic G.
You have till 8:00 a.m. MST next Friday (the 13th!) to submit a poem to Chelsea.
So here goes with the philosophy of our very own wise one. So many to go for yet so few will rhyme…
‘Apart from his girl like eye lashes, thankfully no sign of dad in me’
‘Of all the festive colours, my muppet Dad bought a black Christmas Tree’
On a packed French TGV ‘why does the food smell of wee’
To someone from Ireland ‘apart from the rain, wind and cold is it like Hawaii’
Shouting ‘he’s got rabies’ to a poor bearded man on a train
To a mum in the playground ‘my dad fancies someone called Shania Twain’
‘Dad it’s rude to say fart you need to call it a bottom burp’
‘My Dad is a muppet, funny but such a twerp’
‘I can’t eat that carrot, it looks like a willy’
‘That looks like sick’ the day school served chilli
To his nursery teacher ‘my dad let’s me watch Frankenstein’
‘My teacher broke a cup and said a funny word, what does FUCK mean’
**** important note ‘my dad let’s me watch Frankenstein’ actually means ‘my dad let’s me watch Scooby Doo which featured Frankenstein’.
