Poems I Wrote When No One Was Looking by Alan Katz

Funny poems for older kids.  Here’s my favorite:

 Because You Asked

My sister’s name is Cora.

My mother’s name is Dora.

My grandpa’s Dan.

My grandma’s Ann.

My father is a snorer.

My collie’s name is Truman.

Around the house he’s zoomin’.

He’s ninety pounds.

More than most hounds.

(I think he thinks he’s human.)

And me?  My name is Rosie.

My room is very cozy.

There’s more to share,

but I’ll stop there.

You really are quite nosy.
