Funny Poem a Day – Masterpiece Mum, by Sarah Ziman

Lola does not paint very often, she is not that artistic, but just occasionally she makes her mark for a good cause. She is a passionate believer in libraries and books and reading – as you can see from her poster.

Thank you to Sarah Ziman for the today’s poem – I think you will see the connection to the above subject, once you have read it!

 

Masterpiece Mum

 

My face is shaped like a potato,

I’ve got rather odd coloured skin –

one eye is up high on my forehead,

and the other is nearer my chin.

My cabbage leaf ears are enormous,

my earrings could be nuts and bolts,

for my hair just imagine a hedgehog –

who’s somehow received ninety volts.

My cheeks are as red as two cherries,

my teeth are a giant white bridge,

but you can tell from my grin that I’m happy –

and I’m proud to be stuck to the fridge!
