  • 37. Rapunzel’s Rap Rapunzel was a girl with hair of gold Trapped in a tower in days of old She wasn’t allowed outside to play And her golden hair grew longer each day Grew longer and longer and longer each day. The witch who locked her up was mean With a pointed nose and a face of green Mean mean meaner than the queen of mean. - Sonja Dunn
  • 38. My Rap Poem #1 There once was an old lady who never said please, She walked down the street one day and got covered in cheese. So she ran back home and took a shower, Got her broomstick and said “I’ve got the power”. She got on her broomstick and zoomed to the supermarket, But realised there was no-where to park it. So she decided to go to the park, But by the time she got there it was dark. She went home and cooked up a potion, And it turned into body lotion. So she went to bed and thought “Today has twisted me around the bend” And now the poem has finished, The End.
