The Little Book of Spoogy Poetry

Today I decided to make my little girl (4yrs old) a poetry book – all the poems were written and illustrated today whilst I have been recovering from the flu so don’t expect any prize winners!

It looks like this:

The Little Book of Spoogy Poetry

And the Poems are:

Spoogy Poetry

This is your Little Book of SPOOOGY Poetry

For Halloween or anytime really


So let me tell you what it’s about PUMPKINS and BATS

and things like that


And don’t get too scared whilst you read

As all spoogies within are friendly and in need

Of an extra special friend called Jean

That little special person know as Bean


And in case they are in any doubt

ALL little girls called Jean!

Give us a spoogy shout!


Oooooooo SPOOGY!


Skeleton

Skeleton rattle

Skeleton chatter

Skeleton looking scary

But rather batttered


But you are a toy

And Jean’s friend really

And I think you look

rather silly!


Percy the Bat

Percy the bat

is as black as can be

with little pointy ears

and a bright pink tongue


He sings a song in

squeaks and clicks

And for his tea

what he likes best

are a few nice BIG

juicy insects!


Pumpkins

Pumpkin round

Pumpkin orange

Pumpkin hollow

Pumpkin carved

Pumpkin lit

Pumpkin scare!

Pumpkins – EVERYWHERE!


A Little Black Cat

There’s a little black cat

called Minni the Pusscat


She’s not slender and she’ not fat

But she does like to chase El’Nosey Rat

Who tries to sit upon her mat

And chew up a very special pink straw hat


Now this straw hat belongs to Jean

A Little girl who’s ever so keen

To look so wonderfully nice and clean

So that at her aunts wedding she can dream

Of looking like a custard creme?


And so when El’Nosy Rat

Sits upon the mat

All sleek and shiny and fat

Chowing down on Jean Bean’s hat

Minni Puss that lovely cat

Comes with a prickly paw

for a cosy little chat


And so…

The cat sat on the mat to have a chat

with a fat, hat munching rat


So that…

Jean Bean the keen clean custard cream can dream – it seems


How about that!

For a story about a little black cat


The Mummy

The Mummys sleep in their Sarcophagi

Dreaming of eating cherry pie


Wrapped up in bandages from head to tow

No wonder when they wake they lurch so slow


Chasing us here and there

Just wanting to borrow enough for a bus fare


To take them to the culinary height

Of a 24 hr super market at night


All this for some Cherry Pie?

Is this really why they refuse to die?


On Being Scared

Mummy don’t go it’s night out there

It’s spoogy and woogy and there’s owls alright

That go hoot and woo


Mummy cuddle me it’s night out there

It’s scary and weary and there’s cows alright

That go lo and moo


Mummy tell me a story its night out there

The one about monsters under the bed

That go meow and purr


Here are some of the pages from the book – pre-binding

Mummy eating cherry pie Pumpkins and bats

It says -Goodnight Halloween ’09 on the last page and on the back it says Made by Wiggly Pets in Conjuction with the Monster Blogs :)

Instructions on how I made the book and more photos will shortly appear on Salaric Craft.
