Comedy Poems

Jack- By Jane Yolen

Jack was quite nimble,

Jack was quite quick,

Jack gave the beanstalk,

A mighty big kick,

Down came the giant, 


Bottoms up in a crater, 

Thus ending it all.

I have a Little Frog 

I have a little frog, 

His name is Tiny Tim, 

I put him in the bathtub,

To see if he could swim

He drank up all the water,

And gobbled up the soap!
And when he tried to talk,

He had a bubble in his throat.



Funny Poems that Rhyme and Make You Laugh

Snowball By Shel Silverstein

I made myself a snowball,

As perfect as could be.

I thought I’d keep it as a pet,

And let it sleep with me.

I made it some pyjamas,

And a pillow for its head.

Then last night it ran away,

But first, it wet the bed.



Circus Man by Denise Rogers

There once was a young man from Flint,

Who worked at the circus for a stint.

He flew through the air,

With hardly a care,

And that's why his body was all bint.

A Mouse In Her Room

A mouse in her room woke Miss Doud

Who was frightened and screamed very loud

Then a happy thought hit her

To scare off the critter

She sat up in bed and just meowed.
