A boot on her head!

There was once a young lady
Who wore a boot on her head
‘Why on earth do you do that?’
A wise man once said
She replied with such eager
‘oh I do hate the rain’
So with a boot on her head
Dry she’d remain
Then she smiled and waved
And said bye to this fellar
But he called her back and asked
‘Why not an umbrella’
She giggled a little
Then said ‘to be fair
No matter how high I hold it
It gets caught on my hair’
Last but not least he shouted
‘Woman why not a hat?’
She scratched her head and said
‘I hadn’t thought of that
!’

    Well done Marinela…it made me laugh.. I have been writing funny poetry for LOL website started by Leo.. you can visit that and sometimes try to write fun and laughter..

    I enjoyed every line of it.. I thought since she had placed her boot on head..she will say , well umbrella, wouldn’t have fitted my feet..

  10. Petty Witter says:

    Just what I needed, something to put a smile on my face. A boot could be the answer to the umbrella problem of it being too windy or not having a hand that is free.

  11. Arti says:

    Hi Marinela, Thanks a million for visiting my blog and showing me the way to yours. Your name is as sweet as you, and I was pleasantly surprised to see how much you have achieved in such a young age.

    This poem is very funny and I enjoyed reading it very much. Well-done!

    Love, Punam

    That’s clever! I like it. I can actually see the whole conversation.

    How’s your week so far?

    Many thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!

    I like this because it is the “silly old me” kind of humor that children adore. It would make a fun poem particularly for younger children, especially if you can tighten it up so that the sentence rythm flows. A few sentences have unnecessary extra beats; with a bit of word-chopping and sentence structure changes, you could perfect this into a skipping-rhyme rythym. There’s room for a bit more silliness too, trying on different headpieces before meeting the wise one. I can imagine singing this to my grandkids and having fun while they’re getting dressed to go outdoors, thinking up all sorts of alternatives to brollies and hats. 🙂 Nice poem!!

  16. Shootingstar says:

    Lovely !, also , ur blogrolled. 🙂

  17. Kelvin Kao says:

    Haha, I love this poem.

    It actually sounds like one of those that get passed down from generations to generations. I like this kind of silliness.

    The only thing that will make it even more perfect is to have the picture match the poem. 🙂

  18. Talon says:

    Oh my! I am laughing out loud and the dogs are looking at me like I’ve lost my mind! This was so great!!

  25. jabblog uk says:

    Very funny and rhythmic. I read a couple of your others, too. I really liked the one about your grandmother – so many regrets there are when someone dies but we live in the moment with little thought for after death.

  26. hehe…quite funny it was….but got a sight of ur writing….nice piece…

  33. Very intelligent write.

    Cheers.

  34. Oh, I just couldn’t resist:

    “A boot on the head
    Is better,” she said,
    “Than wearing a hat
    Or a cat.

    “It keeps off the rain
    And keeps me quite sane—
    Not even a hat
    Could do that!”
