I Didn't Go Camping

A Funny Summer Poem for Kids

I didn't go camping.
I didn't go hiking.
I didn't go fishing.
I didn't go biking.

I didn't go play
on the slides at the park.
I didn't watch shooting stars
way after dark.

I didn't play baseball
or soccer outside.
I didn't go on an
amusement park ride.

I didn't throw Frisbees.
I didn't fly kites,
or have any travels,
or see any sights.

I didn't watch movies
with blockbuster crowds,
or lay on the front lawn
and look at the clouds.

I didn't go swimming
at pools or beaches,
or visit an orchard
and pick a few peaches.

I didn't become
a guitarist or drummer,
but, boy, I played plenty
of Minecraft this summer.

--Kenn Nesbitt
