Funny Poem for Kids

Poem About Teachers Being Human

People think teachers are not human, so I thought I would show that they are, being a teacher myself now. They don't sleep in cupboards. They have homes and families and bodily functions! Kids will appreciate the humour!

Haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Was researching poems about families for children to teach this term when I somehow came across this poem. Thank you so much!

Today The Teacher Farted


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2014 with permission of the Author.

Today the teacher farted.
It was an awful smell.
It was just like a rotting egg,
Straight from the depths of hell!

She tried to keep it secret
By sitting in a group.
But it was really obvious,
When she said, "Who did that poop?"

She screwed her bright, red face up
And blamed it all on Claire.
But later when I needed help,
The stench was round her chair!

She avoided my eye contact
And ticked my work in green.
But she knew that her body smells
Were foul and quite obscene.

I asked her what that smell was.
She said she'd not a clue.
I hope to God that eggy smell
Was fart and not a poo!

Today the teacher farted.
My word, what had she ate?
I'll always remember what she did,
And now I'm thirty eight!

LOL - Yes indeed, teachers are human. This had a nice rhythm, and the content was so much fun to read. I have no personal story about this subject but, trust me, I do it too.

I can tell you this exact scenario happened to me. However, the fart did not last for a long time. It was clearly audible and I became a laughing stock for the rest of the year.

My 5 year old daughter loved this and has taken a copy into school. Just hope her teacher has a sense of humor!

I just laughed out loud! My father is a teacher. I hope he never tortured his students in this antic manner!

Really cool poem. I'm sure my teacher in high school would not lie about something like that!

Hilarious! Made me laugh. Well done. Thanks for sharing.

This poem is great!!!! I'm going to show this to my son who's in 3rd grade and having some issues with liking his teacher. I'm hoping this might warm him up and open his eyes to the fact that, as you said, teachers are human!! Thanks!!
