Pocket Poetry Day 2013: Uncle Goose by Greg Pincus

Today is Pocket Poetry Day 2013. In celebration, here is one of my favorite poems from last year’s THE LATE BIRD by Greg Pincus.

Uncle Goose by Greg Pincus

Humpty Dumpty’s all cracked up,
And I’m the one who broke him.
Brother John is not asleep,
And I’m the one who woke him.

Georgie Porgie kissed the girls,
But I’m the one who dared him.
Jack and Jill both tumbled down,
‘Cause I’m the one who scared ’em.

The baby in the tree-top stayed
‘Til I came by and shook him.
Those kittens’ mittens sure weren’t lost
Since I’m the one who took them.

Little Bo once lost her sheep,
And I’m the one who hid ’em.
Yes, lots of bad, bad things were done…
And I’m the one who did ’em.
