Poetry Friday – Time to Set the Table

Time to Set the Table

Time to set the table.
What do we need?
Napkins to sit on
and dishes to read.

Knives for the soup
and spoons for the steak.
Forks for the juice
and straws for the cake.

Cups for the beans
and bowls for the bread
and chopsticks for dad
to butter his head.

From the book: Tie Your Socks and Clap Your Feet Mixed-up poems by: Lenny Hort
