More Rhymes for Kids

My memory’s never been great
(Is three plus four six, or perhaps eight?)
Yesterday I forgot I was me
And ate next door’s breakfast for tea.

I’d write everything down, but then
I can find neither paper nor pen.
Again.

* * *

If you’re going to buy shoes
Always travel in twos
To avoid a fashion disaster.
And if you’re never sure quite
Which is left and which right,
Wear a boot and a lightly oiled caster.

* * *

An unearthly glow
Suffused his toe
And travelled quite soon to his knee.
Joyfully he rose,
“If it reaches my nose
I can use it for warming my tea.”
