Don't Pinch


"When I got on the school bus,
I was in for a surprise.
My friends all stared and pointed
There was mischief in their eyes.
A kid who sat in front of me
reached out and pinched my knee.
My friends all started laughing,
but the joke was lost on me.
And then I got my second pinch.
I felt it on my ear.
And then I felt a third and fourth.
You guessed it--on my rear.
I asked, "Why are you pinching me?
I think it's very mean!"
They said, "Today's St. Patrick's Day
and you're not wearing green." 
~ Bruce Lansky ~


Happy St. Patrick's Day, my friends,
and don't forget to wear green :)

Cute poem. I remember those days of getting pinched. I woke up this morning & put my green on right away. Happy St. Patrick's Day.

I remembered to wear green to school today because I did not want to get pinched! I have a no pinching rule in my class because kinders tend to get carried away! Loved the cute poem...:) Have a blessed Tuesday...Vicky

What a cute poem, my friend. We arrived home after midnight as our plane was delayed. Thank you for your prayers. Happy belated St. Patrick's Day to you. xo

Gina said...

Stephanie, what a darling poem. I remember being pinched in school when I didn't wear green. I can't image that the kids would be allowed to pinch any more.

Jackie said...

Doesn't take a child long to learn what's going on with the pinching....and then long to "pinch" someone next year when it rolls around.
I hope that you had a beautiful day!
