Funny Poems for Children

You’ve got to help me doctor please.  
      I don’t know what to do.
I’ve got some funny symptoms 
     And I think I might have ‘flu.

I used the ointment in this tin
   And applied it with due care,
But look at what has happened now -
      I’m covered all in hair!

My hands have also changed their shape.
      They seem to be like paws!
And, look!  My lovely finger nails!
      Well, don't they look like claws?

My nose has changed its shape as well
     And looks - well, like a snout!
And see what’s happened to my back? - 
     A tail is sticking out!

The other thing which bothers me –
     Perhaps you might have seen - 
My eyes have changed their colour now.
    They're brown instead of green.

'Your voice, it seems, is nice and strong 
    And hasn't changed, as yet!
But my advice to you my friend
     Is to find yourself a vet.'
