To B or Not to B
A Funny Alliteration Poem for KidsRate this poem
From the book My Cat Knows Karate
I bought a black banana,
and a broken baseball bat,
a burst balloon, a busted boat,
a beat-up bowler hat.
I wasn’t being brainy, bright,
or brilliant, but you see,
my brain was boggled after
being bitten by a bee.
