Burp Poetry

Every parent hopes to read special words written by their children.

Jennifer hoped too.

She found this poem in her son’s notebook.

Ode to onomatopoeia and repetition.


Thanks to Jennifer for sharing this note she found in Max’s backpack via Instagram. Max’s writing has been featured here before: Does Elbow Licking Count As Spending Time Wisely? You can read more about Jennifer’s life with Max and his twin sister at NuckingFutsMama.com. And check her out on Twitter: @nuckingfutsmama.

  1. Reminds me of Baldricks ‘poem’ in BlackAdder, reflecting on the First World 1.

    Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom,
    Boom, Boom, Boom.
    Boom, Boom, etc

    If you haven’t seen it I’m sure it’s there somewhere on YouTube,

  2. As you can imagine, Baldrick’s mother would be extremely proud too.
