  • 14. Poems Student 1: for when you were obliged to sneeze, This poem is called ‘Betty eats spaghetti’ your brain would rattle from the breeze. When Betty eats spaghetti, She slurps, she slurps, slurps, Your nose, instead, through thick and thin, And when she’s finished slurping, remains between your eyes and chin, She burps, she burps, she burps not pasted on some other place-- be glad your nose is on your face! Student 2: This poem is called ‘Pretty shell’ Student 5: Tell me your secrets, pretty shell, This poem is called ‘New kid’ I will promise not to tell! There's a new kid on the block, Humming, humming, soft and low- and boy, that kid is tough, All about the sea I know. that new kid punches hard, You are. Murmuring I think, that new kid plays real rough, Of the sea-weeds, green and pink, that new kid's big and strong, Of the tiny baby shells with muscles everywhere, Where the mother mermaid dwells that new kid tweaked my arm, Pretty shell, I, m waiting here, that new kid pulled my hair. Come, and whisper in my ear. That new kid likes to fight, Student 3: and picks on all the guys, This poem is called ‘If’ that new kid scares me some, If all the seas were one sea, (that new kid's twice my size), What a great sea that would be! that new kid stomped my toes, If all the trees were one tree, that new kid swiped my ball, What a great tree that would be! that new kid's really bad, If all the axes were one axe, I don't care for her at all. What a great axe that would be! If all the men were one man, All students together: What a great man he would be! Our poem is called ‘Big and little waves” And if the great man took the great axe, There are big waves and little waves, And cut down the great tree, Green waves and blue, And let it fall into the great sea, Waves you can jump over, What a great splash-splash that would be! Waves you dive through Waves that rise up Student 4: Like a great water wall This poem is called ‘Your nose’ Waves that swell softly Be glad your nose is on your face, And don't break at all, not pasted on some other place, Waves that can whisper, for if it were where it is not, Waves that can roar you might dislike your nose a lot. And tiny waves that run at you Playing on the shore. Imagine if your precious nose were sandwiched in between your toes, that clearly would not be a treat, for you'd be forced to smell your feet. Your nose would be a source of dread were it attached atop your head, it soon would drive you to despair, forever tickled by your hair. Within your ear, your nose would be an absolute catastrophe,
