Heading Funny Poems 2 A House Full of Smellies If Pigs Could Fly Betty's Butty Peas Please cowboy plane

This is a very popular poem, and especially with my granddaughter.  Aged just 6 years of age, when my books were published, she pounced on this poem, learned it off by heart and when the teacher asked if they'd had a nice weekend on the following Monday, she recited it, to the astonishment of the class.  I was very proud of her when I heard the story.  Perhaps this story will encourage children in  your class to do the same.  Josie

Yes, I certainly have for . . .


I flew to the moon, kissed a baboon

    And had coffee at Buckingham Palace.

Then on a whim, I went for a swim

    And had lunch with a cowboy in Dallas.


Then, for a lark, I swam with a shark -

    Though the sea was a little bit chilly.

So to warm up my knees, I climbed a few trees.

    Perhaps you might think this was silly.


So I climbed down again, took a plane out to Spain

    And it was here that I surfed on a swell.

And what about you?  Well what did you do?

    Was your weekend quite busy as well?
