Silly poems to share

So I was searching the internet for a new poem to share with my class and found this great website filled with silly poems which are my students favorite kind and of course mine too. It's called Giggle Poetry and you really should go check it out too. I really smiled and laughed as I looked through and loved the pictures too. Here's my favorite which I will not share with my class but is so true. I can't wait for the last day of school and I am probably more excited then my students :) I am counting down!

The Teachers Jumped Out of the Windows
by Kenn Nesbitt

(Sing to the tune of "My Bonnie")

The teachers jumped out of the windows.
The principal ran for the door.
The nurse and librarian bolted.
They’re not coming back anymore.
The counselor, hollering madly,
escaped out the door of the gym.
The coach and custodian shouted
and ran out the door after him.

Oh my! Goodbye!
They’re not coming back anymore, no more.
How fun! They’ve run!
They’re not coming back anymore.

The lunch ladies threw up their ladles,
then fled from the kitchen in haste,
and all of the students looked puzzled
as staff members scurried and raced.
We’d never seen anything like it.
But still, it was pretty darned cool
to see all the staff so excited
to leave on the last day of school.
Chorus again

I'll have to show this to all of the teachers in my life - there are ton around me. When I was little I used to be so attached to my teachers that I bawled my eyes out at the end of each year (this only lasted till about grade six:)
