Poem of the week – May 18

Some funny poems this week. Since they’re pretty short, I added more than one.

To Someone Who Insisted I Look Up Someone

I rang them up while touring Timbuktu,
Those bosom chums to whom you’re known as “Who?”

X. J. Kennedy (Peeping Tom’s Cabin)

The Leader

I wanna be the leader
I wanna be the leader
Can I be the leader?
Can I? I can?
Promise? Promise?
Yippee I’m the leader
I’m the leader

OK what shall we do?
