Poetry Challenge

Joy Acey (of Poetry for Kids fame) has issued a challenge to write your own riddle-poem. You can see the challenge here: http://poetryforkidsjoy.blogspot.com/2014/09/riddle-poem.html#comment-form

I wrote several food-riddle poems a few years ago, but I’m going to post a fresh one below.



You can wrap me in bacon,

or roll me in sugar…

But you won’t want to eat me –

Did you guess?

I’m a booger.


Come on… you saw that coming, didn’t you? You know you needed your daily gram of gross. You are WELCOME. 

Now go PICK your own topic and ride the riddle train. And if it’s kid-friendly-gross, even better.


Got one to share?

  1. Donna, I finally finished my book, “Slave to Slave Master” and it is to be published before December. It is short but the photos and epilogue add to it. I want it to encourage everyone to be a victor and not a victim. Blessings, Jan
