Swimming Ool

A Funny Swimming Pool Poem for Kids

From the book The Aliens Have Landed at Our School!

Swimming in the swimming pool
is where I like to "B,"
wearing underwater goggles
so that I can "C."
Yesterday, before I swam,
I drank a cup of "T."
Now the pool is just an "ool"
because I took a "P."
