Home Spun comic strip #197
We have an excellent book that really helped bring out the poets in my children. It's called Rose, Where Did You Get That Red? by Kenneth Koch. This is the beginning of an actual poem Chase wrote, inspired by William Blake's Tyger, Tyger!
Here is Chase's poem in its entirety (fixed for spelling and punctuation because that's what I do):
Komodo dragon, Komodo dragon,
Why do you have bacteria in your drool?
Why can't you climb on a stool?
How big are you?
Do you eat the cows that moo?
Oh why do you bite?
Why do you raise a fight?
And do you always have to use your might?
