Nonsensical Poems

We all enjoyed as children reciting tongue twisters and such. I remember laughing over How Much Wood Could a Woodchuck Chuck (if a woodchuck could chuck wood). So, today's selections cover that genre.

Practice these today.

The Tutor

A tutor who tooted a flute,
Tried to teach two young tooters to toot.
Said the two to the tutor,
"Is it harder to toot, or
To tutor two tooters to toot?"

by Carolyn Wells

The Fly and the Flea

A flea and a fly in a flue
Were imprisoned, so what could they do?
Said the fly, "Let us flee,"
Said the flea, "Let us fly,"
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.
