I have recently read Robot+Bike=Kitten a super funny children’s poetry book by Joe Mohr. Joe is an artist and a poet and I discovered him at March Madness, hosted by Ed DeCaria, this year. (p.s. everyone sign up next year :))
I Licycle to Bicycle
by Joe Mohr
I asked my good pal Micycle
To join me on a hicycle.
He dislicycled the hicycle.
He only licycles to bicycle.
Well, we are quite alicycle.
I also licycle to bicycle
Just not as much as Micycle.
Next time he’s asked to hicycle
He said he’ll start a hunger-stricycle!
How’s that for a tongue twister? Thanks so much to Joe for allowing me to share his poem. I think he really does licycle to bicycle.
You can find him off his bicycle on Twitter @PoemsofJoeMs and on his website PoemsofJoeMs.
Now here’s a quick look at how us Brits teach our kids to ride bikes (warning: this is very funny!)
