We have been enjoying a book of silly poems by Douglas Florian and thought we'd participate in Kris' Poetry Wednesday, R and B style.
This one goes out to Mr. P-roc because of his great love of doing mixed up and goofy stuff (and his fondness for sauerkraut).
Mr. Backward lives in town.
He never wakes up, he always wakes down.
He eats dessert before his meal.
His plastic plants and flowers are real.
He takes a bath inside his sink
And cleans his clothes with purple ink.
He wears his earmuffs on his nose
And a woolen scarf around his toes.
He loves his gloves worn inside out.
He combs his hair with sauerkraut.
His black dog, Spot, is colored green.
His grandmama is seventeen.
He rakes the leaves still on the trees
And bakes a cake with antifreeze.
He goes to sleep beneath his bed
While wearing slippers on his head.
