Stupid Poems 16


Who has never sat on a bus and wondered what the driver’s christian name is? Who has never owned an armadillo with musical potential? Who has never wondered what patriotic song to sing while washing their hands? These are just some of life’s important questions which ‘Stupid Poems’, once again, explores. 

A dinosaur said to another dinosaur, 
When something in the sky he saw: 
‘Oh look, there’s an asteroid. 
Do you think it’s something we should av...’

I read Stupid Poems 15 last December, so when I clued into what day it was I went looking for the next installment.

These poems are definitely stupid and silly. They are also exactly what some of us need right now.

I rolled my eyes, laughed, even shook my head. Which is great because I'm sure that's meant to be the purpose.

I look forward to reading next years edition ;-).

This book lives up to its name in the best possible way. Armadillos playing pianos, Covid related jokes and hand washing are just a couple of the things that had me laughing out loud. Much needed silliness in this time.

Amusing collection of silly poems about animals, Covid and many more. The rhyming style and plays on words are reminiscent of Shel Silverstein. Enjoyable poems for adults and kids alike!

Well, the title isn't wrong.

Though that may seem a bit snide, I appreciate that. I think we, as teachers, often do a disservice to poetry when it's only used seriously. There are some great mentor texts in here for teaching poetry as an act of play.
