Funny Poems

If you lived in a dictionary

    You’d have to dine on words,

And words for breakfast, dinner, lunch?

    That might be quite absurd.


Then would you eat methodically –

    Perhaps from A to Z –

And would you know when it was night

    And where you’d go to bed?


Where would you hide if children came

     To check their spellings there?

Oh, living in a dictionary

     Would need a lot of  care.


There’s something else I’ve thought about

    And so I’ll ask this question:

'Could eating lots and lots of words

     Perhaps cause indigestion?'


At breakfast would you just eat words -

    Well, crunch on them with toast?

The longer, harder words, perhaps,

    You’d need to slowly roast.


If you lived in a dictionary

    And dwelt there, say, long-term –

Well tell me what I’d call you then?

    Of course, you’ll say - - - - - -  'book-worm'.
