Funny Kids Poetry

I write Kids Poetry all the time, just for fun. The first funny poem on this page is Nettlesome Ned

Nettlesome Ned, a bit of kids poetry on

0ld nettlesome Ned
Kept a bird on his head
From the moment he woke every day.
The bird rarely spoke,
Was a reticent bloke
Whether at work or at play.

Said Nettlesome Ned,
To the bird on his head,
“I am growing quite tired of your weight.
As diets abound,
You must drop a pound
Or your new home will be on my plate."

This very thick bird
Surely heard every word,
But it seemed he was very well fed.
So he made not a sound
As he plopped half a pound
On the backside of Nettlesome Ned.

Funny Kids Poetry #2

My Dog? A funny poem for kid on

My dog has gone fruit loops.
He’s crazy.
He’s daft.
He doesn’t chase squirrels
and he loves to take baths.
He won’t chase his tail
Or go leaving his “mark.”
He won’t play with dogs
when we walk to the park.
He never eats dog food,
likes turkey and bread.
Instead of a dog treat,
eats pretzels instead.
Allergic to peanuts,
allergic to cats.
His head’s rarely bare
as he owns twenty hats.
He’s quite a weird dog,
So unlike any other.

Wait, that’s not our dog!
That’s my pesky kid brother.

Funny Kids Poetry #3

The next funny poem is A Start, and it's about how I feel about writing. 

A little bit of rhythm and a touch of funky rhyme...
You put them all together
and that’s how I spend my time,
Tweaking all the letters and the spaces ‘tween them too,
Twirling them together to blend up a tasty stew.

The rhythm’s for my toe tap, the idea for my mind
The image for my inner eye, that’s like the outer kind.
I add a dash of feeling, just enough to touch my heart.
I’m not quite making poetry, but it is, at least,
A start.
