Down Went the Spoon

By Laura G.

Down went the spoon
with a great, big boom!
the pancake batter.

Down went the cup
(certainly not up)
and out spilled the water
to make a new brook.

Down went my cookie
all ready to munch
well, it broke into pieces
and now was a bunch.

Down went the soap
right into the sink
where it started to slide
so my eyes I did shut
to supposed a round rink.

Down went the coins
I saved for a week
why, they started to scatter
and play hide and seek!

Down went the feather
I found on a bench,
it floated so slowly
I thought I’d have lunch.

Down went the ball
which bounced up and down
then rolled out the hall
and rolled down the steps
and rolled till it stopped
by my Daddy so tall.

Down went the cat
that twisted and squirmed
till it landed flat
on its four furry feet.

Down went the puzzle
so hard to do.
then CRASH! And CLASH!
was a hundred and one
Pieces again.

Down went the brush
just dipped in red paint
and spotted poor Spot
who all of a sudden
was just one red spot.

Down went the clay
that I shaped like a jay
and THUMP!
resembled a bump.

Down went the phone
with such a jingle and jangle
that my friend cried out
“Why! My ear’s a’ tingle!”

Down went the plate
which I wanted to wash
but instead it went
and shattered to shards.

Down I went
from my bicycle seat
but as soon as I landed
like a jack-in-the-box.
