Poetry Corner #18

So I was thinking about the poem I wanted to do and I thought I should do Shel Silverstein since I am in the mood for something fun. Some people say his poems are for kids but I think his poems are meant for any age and they are just fun.

     By: Shel Silverstein

Last night, while I lay thinking here,
some Whatifs crawled inside my ear
and pranced and partied all night long
and sang their same old Whatif song:
Whatif I'm dumb in school?
Whatif they've closed the swimming pool?
Whatif I get beat up?
Whatif there's poison in my cup?
Whatif I start to cry?
Whatif I get sick and die?
Whatif I flunk that test?
Whatif green hair grows on my chest?
Whatif nobody likes me?
Whatif a bolt of lightning strikes me?
Whatif I don't grow taller?
Whatif my head starts getting smaller?
Whatif the fish won't bite?
Whatif the wind tears up my kite?
Whatif they start a war?
Whatif my parents get divorced?
Whatif the bus is late?
Whatif my teeth don't grow in straight?
Whatif I tear my pants?
Whatif I never learn to dance?
Everything seems well, and then
the nighttime Whatifs strike again! 

Have a wonderful weekend! DFTBA!


  1. My English teacher said that children books/picture are more enjoyable to read and you get something else out of it now that you are older. And i agree with her. :D Because when I read Shel Silverstein poems they are so whimsical and fun to read and if you read his books, they got pictures!

    Gosh, gotta hate Whatifs! XD

    1. So true, you gain a new appreciation for them as you get older!
