Follow the Leader

PAD, Day 26 - leader, follower
Well, many of my poems have been about kids lately. What can I say? I don't want to grow up (I'm a toys r us kid, right?) And winding down to the end of the month, I'm just about over trying to stick to a form. Only 4 to go!


Follow the Leader

I'm it! I'm the leader!
You have to follow me.
March, march, march, stop!
Let's climb this big fat tree.

Scramble up, dangle down.
Now where shall we go?
Through the fence, down the hill
Roll, roll, roll.

Now a hop, a skip and jump
Splash into a puddle.
Straighten out your airplane arms
And fly out of trouble.

Let's crash down to the ground
And look up to the sky.
We'll name the shapes as we watch
The clouds float by.

Thanks, you guys =)
Wouldn't you just love to go into an office and get a game going "Now everyone take a drink of coffee, now everyone make a copy of their...hand"
