More Poetry Month

Here's a poem from Schoolyard Rhymes collected by Judy Sierra.  The poet is Anonymous!  It sounds like a jump rope rhyme.  Do you have a favorite jump rope rhyme to share at the Parkland Community Library?  Enjoy.

Oh, my, my.
I want a piece of pie.
Pie too sweet.
I want a piece of meat.
Meat too tough.
I want to ride the bus.
Bus too full.
I want to ride a bull.
Bull too black.
I want my money back.
Money too green.
I want a jellybean.
Bean too red.
I want to go to bed.
Bed too soft.
Throw the pillow off.
Close your eyes
And count to ten,
And if you mess up,
Start over again.
