Children's Poems
by Margo Fallis
Pink Bubblegum

A little girl named Sue walked down the street.

She was looking at a bird that sang, “Tweet! Tweet!”

She stepped on something squishy and stopped to see.

What held her foot? It was pink, stringy and gooey.

Bubblegum stuck to the bottom of her shoe.

“What a sticky mess! What am I to do?”

She tried to scrape it off on the sidewalk so gray,

But the bubblegum stuck and wouldn’t go away.

She pulled with her fingers, but made a big mess;

Pink bubblegum got all over her dress.

It got in her hair and it got on her nose,

She got gum on her legs; she got gum on her toes.

After a few moments there was gum everywhere.

Sue let out a roar, like a grizzly bear.

Bees came flying by and landed on Sue’s head;

They licked the bubblegum as if they’d never been fed.

A grasshopper leaped and landed on Sue’s cheeks

And two robins flew past and nibbled with their beaks.

Sue fell to the ground and she started to cry.

“I want to go home, take a shower and get dry.”

When Sue’s mom saw her daughter, she let out a howl.

Her eyes grew huge, much like those of an owl.

She took off Sue’s clothes and put her in the shower.

She washed face and arms, but it took near an hour.

Sue stood wrapped in a towel, nice and clean.

There was no more pink bubblegum that could be seen.

From that day on Sue didn’t look up in the trees.

She watched where she was walking and avoided bees.

Never again did she step on something sticky;

No bubblegum, no toffee, or anything icky.
