Funny Poems for Kids

Funny Children's Poetry

Sometimes children with their fresh eyes looking at the world may be able to see that which an adults eyes pass over. There are many sayings to express this sentiment. One is, "out of the mouths of babes", another coined by a television show is, "kids say the darndest things". We recognize that as adults we have become jaded. We may miss hilarious ironies about the world that our children have to point out to us. If I had to take a guess, I would say that children are in the world for just this purpose.

    He always thinks that my suggestions are perfectly fine.

    The people outside on the sidewalk
    can’t seem to remain on the ground.
