These words are the property of clever people. I'm just trying to put them in order.

Z is for Zigzag

My life is a zigzag

Not just a straight line

I dash here and then there

And that is just fine.

My brain thinks in zigzags

Thinking this and then that,

If my brain were a child,

They’d sure love to chat.

It’s filled with ideas

Some spill from my ears

Some onto the page

But some disappear.

When I think about writing

My brain breathes a sigh

As my thoughts can be freed 

And through the pencil they fly!

Many notebooks I’ve started

Have never been finished

As zigzags draw my thoughts elsewhere

But as I’ve reached zed

There’s a smile in my head

And for now, I think it will stay there.


Y is for Yesterday.

Yesterday is finished

It’s time to do today.

Let’s take everything we’ve learned

And put things into play.

If yesterday was stressterday,

Then you can leave the stress behind,

There are more important fish to fry,

And bigger clues to find.

X is for X-ray.

Ever wondered what’s inside

Your jingly-jangly arms?

Get yourself an X-ray,

They’re filled up with lucky charms! 

Have you bumped your head and asked,

Am I just filled up with hot air?

Get yourself an X-ray

If you want to see in there! 

Did you ever break a bone

And never get it checked? 

Get yourself an X-ray

Show your body some respect!

W is for Water.

Water palaver!

Water surprise! 

Water in my eyes! 

Just a drop, 

A belly flop,

And you’re in paradise.

My best friends are mostly water

And the rest of them is love,

They’re all like big old walking, talking, lovely, jubbly, water jugs! 

V is for Velcro.

Velcro is rough

And velcro is soft,

If you can’t tie your shoes,

Then velcro’s the stuff.

Velcro is yucky,

When it gets all soggy,

Like a walk in the rain,

With your favourite doggy.

Velcro can fix,

Almost anything,

From doorhandles, soup bowls,

And diamond rings.

So thank you dear velcro,

You really are great!

Without you we’d be eating from smashed-up plates!

U is for Unicorn.

They say that a unicorn’s friendly

But why does it carry a horn;

Unless it’s trying to jab us,

Or maybe it’s filled with scorn.

A unicorn’s supposed to be lovely,

But it’s just like a narwhal with legs,

Why are our tastes so sea-ist? 

Can’t we just love pointy whales instead? 

T is for Travel.

To travel is to explore

How to get from A to B

It’s also a way to learn

All the words that people speak

Sounds and smells so foreign

But the foreigner is you

When your world’s placed inside another

You get a whole new point of view.

The world looks so much clearer

When it’s all completely new

Every day is an adventure

A new place to take your shoes.

S is for Sleep.

Sleep is when you get to stop,

And let everything just rest,

Whether you’re tired from doing sports,

Or stressed about a test.

Sleep is when you get to dream,

Your brain is a film director,

Or the option is there,

To fly through the air,

You are the dream selector.

Sleep is a time the world can’t see you,

Unless you’re asleep on a plane,

Make sure you don’t dribble on strangers,

Or they might just do the same!

R is for Reading.

Reading is a pleasure,

A rather luxurious endeavour,

To enable your brain to learn or dream,

Anything whatsoever.

Whether imagine unvisited places,

Or learn about the stars,

A book can teach you anything,

Even how to drive a car!

Reading is a blessing,

Not everyone’s taught how to do,

I’m eternally grateful for this skill,

So I’m off to read a book or two!
