Runny Babbit

As a child, my parents read Shel Silverstein poems to my sisters and me. Mr. Silverstein's poems never fail to make me laugh, so I thought I'd share one from his book Runny Babbit in which Runny Babbit and his friends Toe Jurtle, Skertie Gunk, Rirty Dat, Dungry Hog, Snerry Jake, and many others speak a topsy-turvy language all their own!

Kugs and Hisses

Runny said, "I'm lonesome,
I feel so glad and soomy.
I need some kugs and hisses -
Now, who's gonna give 'em to me?"

"I will," said Polly Dorkupine,"
"'Cause you're cute as a rug in a bug."
Said Runny, "Well, I'll kake the tiss,
But never hind the mug."

I hope everyone has had a great weekend!
