Featured Poem for September

Try reading as a poem for two voices, and have fun.

Zombies! Evacuate the School!

 

Zombies in the bathroom!

There!

I eyeballed them myself.

Sh!

Giant blind naked desert mole rats

are camped behind that shelf.

Hide!

Lizard Men and Cat People

are prowling down the hall.

The principal’s gone werewolf.

Look!

His eyes are red and small.

Ikes!

Piranha in the fish tank.

Flying monkeys on the lights.

The librarian’s grown fangs.

Duck and cover!

I’m pretty sure she bites.

Freeze!

Aliens are snatching teachers.

The custodian’s a ghoul.

This place is freaking out.

Quick!

Evacuate the school.

NEW IN PAPERBACK


A giggly student asked during a school visit last year, “Why is the mole naked?”

Well, in case you’ve never seen one before: Here ya go!

Proof that nature is way more scary than fiction.

Thanks to Michael Salinger for finding this picture for me, but I don’t know who the real photocredit belongs to as Michael found it unattributed on a blog.  If it is yours, please let me know so I can attribute!
