I’m not a poet & now I know it

Well my poem went really well into the bin, I tried but as I realised its a lot harder than making the last words rhyme. FKBK sent it to their poet in residence & she put me to shame with her version which I have now put into the FKBK Workshop handout.
FKBK are on the lookout for teachers, poets, artists etc who would like to go into their local primary schools to offer workshops, worth a look me thinks… After a cup a tea

Yippee For Kids By Kids are here, so enjoy,
Our teacher will help us, each girl & each boy.
Under their watchful eyes, our efforts will grow,
Real poems & stories will soon be on show.
No-one will struggle, each page will be fun,
And very quickly our book will be done.
Maybe we’ll show off our work in our school,
Everyone, seeing, would think it so cool!
