Funny Poems for Children

By Josie Whitehead


By Josie Whitehead

Don't Pick, Don't Pick

Don’t pick at your food and don’t pick your nose

And don’t pick at that – 'What is it?'  'Who knows?'


Don’t pick at your scab and don’t pick that spot,

But pick out the weeds – yes, pick out the lot.


Don’t pick, don’t pick – is there ever an end?

Yes, be sure that you pick the very best friend.

Discussion I hope you don't pick some of the things I've mentioned in my poem, but what good things have you picked?  Was it a special toy that you wanted for your birthday or Christmas, or have you picked your very best friend already?  Friends can last for a lifetime and what good qualities do you look for in your own friends - and do you have these qualities yourself?  I hope so.  Josie
