My Funny Poem by Donna Murphy

I wrote a poem. I turned it in.
My teacher read it with a grin.

He looked so pleased, I thought he’d cry.
A tear was welling in his eye.

He smiled so wide, I have to say,
I knew I’d nail an easy A.

He chuckled, and I felt so proud
To hear my teacher laugh out loud.

He held his sides and read some more.
He wound up rolling on the floor.

He giggled like a girl, and then
Stood up and read my poem again.

He snickered, snorted, shouted, “D’oh!”
“Excuse me kids, I gotta go.”

His face turned red as off he ran,
Still snickering, to use the can.

He didn’t make it there to pee.
My poem came back. I got a D!
