Funny Poems for Children

Eating Breakfast


By Josie Whitehead


I’m halfway through my dinner now

    So there’s half that’s left to eat

And halfway means ? – I’m NOT quite sure.

     Am I ‘halfway to complete?’


I’m halfway through my homework too

    So there’s half that I must do.

I’m halfway through my growing up

   And perhaps you’re halfway too.


I’m halfway up the stairs to bed,

   Or perhaps I’m halfway down -

And the place where I must go to school

     Is halfway into town.


I’m equidistance between two –

    I’m neither here or there –

But when I come to think of it,

      Well, do I really care?
