Monica took up the challenge to write a poem as though you are character in a nursery rhyme. It is very zany and fun to read. Read this poem out loud to someone!
Here’s my nursery rhyme character poem.
Age 11, year 6, Russley School
I really did not mean to fall,
it’s not my fault I am not tall,
I was only reaching for an apple
then fell off in front of the chapel
where two old eggs were playing scrabble.
All I did was break my shell
and all my yolk well- out it fell,
that is the only true part of the story
that the king wrote but cause of his glory
everyone believed him- which was naughty.
So now I’ll tell you the real script:
I was lying there completely stripped ,
all my yolk running out of me
I was right there for someone to see
but no one, NO ONE helped me!
Finally I cried out ‘help!’
My yolk supply was running out.
This nice girl put a plaster on me,
at least this person really could see
that I needed first aid on me.
She took me home and we lived together
and I was happy… FOREVER and EVER!
