Funny Poems 2 Main Poetry Index

Whenever I read story books

    I think it is a shame

That someone gave a character

    A really stupid name.


Red Riding Hood, for instance –

    Well, what sort of name is that?

Who’d call their daughter by a name

    Of something like a hat?


I wonder what her teacher said

    The day she started school?

And did the children laugh at her

    For children can be cruel?


“Red Riding Hood?” the teacher cried:

     That’s surely not your name?

Now come along, you silly girl,

    I don’t have time for games!!


So, tell me what your real name is:

   Blue Anorak?  Green Socks?

Well I think you won’t believe me,

    But MY name is Goldilocks.
