Funny Poems for Children
By Josie Whitehead
Two mosquitoes sat down by a warm, sultry pool.
Tasty blood was their subject, of course.
One said: 'On the whole, I prefer human blood
To the blood of a cow or a horse.'
The other replied: 'Human beings are mean
And they seem most reluctant to share.
When you think of how much every one of them has,
Don’t you think this seems rather unfair?'
His friend then replied: 'Royal blood is the best
And it’s well known that it’s sweet to the taste,
But the Queen had a servant who spotted me first
And I hurried away in great haste.'
'Ah, yes, that’s the problem,' the other one said:
'There are too many eyes and all that.
The other main problem - well that’s what I find -
Is she wears on her head a posh hat.'
'You can hide on the brim and then strike at great speed.
Take things slowly and try not to rush.
Oh, my poor Aunty Ethel once tried that assault
But she died in a bit of a crush.'
'Oooh look!' they both cried: 'See, the swimmers are here,
So we each have our lunch for today,'
But the swimmers had sprayed with repellent and so
The mosquitoes soon went on their way.
