The thing I love about Mr. Prelutsky’s poems is how he brings together two or more completely different things and makes a poem out of them and he is the master of the surprise twist at the end. If you can’t think of new ideas to mix together, you could randomly mix interesting characters from YouTube, like this giant rabbit:
Can you think of a poem using either the two video characters or a spin on the Jack Prelutsky title? Feel free to write a poem in the comments.
