The Potty Menagerie

There’s a frog sitting on the potty going, “Rib-bit”.
Sitting down where I normally sit.
I am not sure why the frog came to visit,
But he’s sitting on the potty going, “Rib-bit.

There’s a cow sitting on the potty going, “Moo-moo”.
She’s sitting in the same place that I do.
I am not sure why the cow came to see you,
But she’s sitting on the potty going, “Moo-moo”.

There’s a horse sitting on the potty going, “Neigh-neigh”.
I sit on the potty in the same way.
I am not sure if the horse is here to stay,
But he’s sitting on the potty going, “Neigh-neigh”.

There’s a bird sitting on the potty going, “Tweet-tweet”.
I sit on that very same seat.
I am not sure if this ever will repeat,
But she’s sitting on the potty going, “Tweet-tweet”.

There’s a dog sitting on the potty going, “Bow-wow”.
She climbed up there, but I don’t know how.
I am not sure if that dog is done now,
But she’s sitting on the potty going, “Bow-wow”.

There’s a donkey sitting on the potty going, “Hee-haw”.
He’s sitting there as if it were a see-saw.
I am not sure why the donkey came to call,
But he’s sitting on the potty going, “Hee-haw”.

I am sitting on the potty singing my song,
About the animals that have been here all day long.
If they can use the potty it can’t be all wrong,
So I’m sitting on the potty singing my song.

    Very creative, Joe and what a great way to get kids to use the toilet. My daughter couldn't get her son to go till age 4 and they found a solution was to give him spiderman underwear and tell him, Now you don't want to go poo poo on Spiderman , do you? It actually worked! Great example poem for us for your contest. One of the best kiddie poems I have read. LUv, Andrea

    Okay, hope you don't mind if I read this to my preschool class...it's just too clever not to share. I even suspect it might help the younger ones with potty training-if they can picture animals in there, how much more pleasant an experience!WooHoo! The typical child 70 percent of the time is pretending to be an animal anyway-they will relate. Thank you. Way to go. Nicely done.

    Very nice - That should occupy the little ones for a few minutes :)
