Since we add new content every month, visit often to keep the laughs rolling!
Popular children’s poet Bruce Lansky, crowned by his elementary school admirers as “The King of Giggle Poetry,” created Gigglepoetry.com to expose kids to poetry while giving them a fun outlet for practicing their creative writing skills.
Here’s a sample of the kind of funny school poems children can find at Gigglepoetry.com:
There’s a New Cook in the Cafeteria
Good morning, staff and students.
We have a brand new cook.
And that’s why our lunch menu
will have a brand new look.
To make a good impression,
our cook’s prepared a treat:
your choice of snapping turtle soup
or deep-fried monkey meat.
If you’re a vegetarian,
we have good news today:
she’s serving pickled cauliflower
and jellyfish soufflé.
And for dessert our cook has made
a recipe from France:
I’m sure you’ll all want seconds—
of chocolate-covered ants.
I hope you like this gourmet feast.
I hope you won’t complain.
But if you do we’ll have to bring
our old cook back again.
