Fatty Grasshopper

Fatty grasshopper
Your legs tickle me throat when
You hop on my neck
Crawly grasshopper
Your feets are scratchy on my arm when
You crawl off my neck
Your teeth nibble on my hand
And chewy like the goat
Silly grasshopper
I ate you
Your legs tickle me throat

    I got a good laugh out of this one. You're very good with humorous writing. I really like all of the detail. Nice work! Jack

    You don't need to apologize for a fun poem. There are kids here are Soup as well and I am one BIG KID too. I bet you really did eat that grasshopper because you have told me the awful things you hunt and eat. hahaha. I would rather dip a grasshopper in chocolate and eat it, than to eat a raccoon or rabbit. haha

    Hi Caleb, it takes some skill to pull this kind of light-poetry off. It definitely works for me. Enjoyed!

    So cute! I can see why your kids got a kick out of this one. I'm sure the last two lines had them in stitches! I love your warning at the end too. Now I'm SO curious about what's in store for your next few poems.
