I'm going to write a poem,
Without a single sound,
No onomatopeia,
No words that I have found.

I will not say the word,
That's spelt B A N G
And will not let you hear the sounds
I have inside of me.

No CRASH BANG WALLOP
No SMASH BONG BING
No silly, silly noises
That just don't mean a thing

I will not say GAZINGA
Or shout BALINGAPOOP
Nor will I stand up on a chair
And scream WALLANGABOOP!

I will not go crazy
And start marching roun...

When the sauropods are coming

Then the ground begins to shake

Can you hear the terrible, terrible

Terrible noise they make?

With feet the size of motorcars,

And legs the size of trees,

They're walking through the forest,

With their great big wobbly knees.

 

The sauropods, the sauropods
Diplodocus and friends
Imagine sliding from his head
To where his tail it ends

Imagine being mistaken
For a tasty leafy treat,
Imagine being sat upon,
O...

The T-Rex gives a mighty roar:

"I'm the most famous dinosaur."

But just there watching all the while,
Is the smiling Crocodile.

 

Who says with glee and snapping jaws,
"But my descendants will outlive yours..."

 

The T-Rex says "It can't be true,
I'm  far bigger and better than you."

 

 

But Croc says "No I'll still be around,
When you're just bones stuck in the ground."

Little Timmy Toucan

Was feeling rather weak

It wasn't easy flying round

With such a massive beak

 

And so he sat down in a tree

And had a little break

He drank a glass of lemonade

And ate some chocolate cake

 

And then he felt much better

So he flew back to his nest​​

Where tired Timmy Toucan

Had another little rest.

The seeds they wait to germinate

Until three needs are met

A place to stay, a sunny day

And water they must get.

 

And then they start to grow and grow

To reach up to the sun,

It happens to them all you know,

Every single one.

 

They grow some roots

That go deep down,

They grow a leafy

Type of crown,

All they need

Is lots of light,

And a chance

To rest at night,

And some water,

And some earth,

And then they grow

For all they're worth.

 

Look at the...

What is photosynthesis?

(Apart from a long word)

It's really quite important,

For all the plants I've heard.

 

It's something about breathing,

And carbon dioxide,

But I don't really understand,

No matter how I've tried.

 

It's something about water

And sun and dark and leaves,

And something about oxygen

Which every plant it breathes.

 

In school my teacher told me,

His name was Mr Rotten,

It's something about glucose,

But now I've quite forgott...

My cousin Andy’s got a six-foot nose

And sixteen purple Pigeons

That whistle on his toes

And when he goes to bed at night

Twelve monkeys guard his bed

And seven yellow spiders

Spin dreams around his head

 

My cousin Andy’s got a Chinese saw

And a ticket from Mongolia

And a book on Aztec law

And when he swims out in the sea

He grows an orange tail

And makes a meal of sausages

In the belly of a whale

 

My cousin Andy’s got a bed that flies

And a...
