Why do I have to clean my room? a poem by, Jack Prelutsky

Why do I have to clean my room
when I would rather play?
The crayons scattered on the floor
are hardly in the way.
I almost never trip upon
my basketball or drums,
and I don’t pay attention
to the cake and cookie crumbs.

Why do I have to clean my room?
I think my room looks nice.
There’s pizza in the corner,
but its only half a slice.
I'm not at all concerned about
the gravy on the chair,
my piles of model planes and trains,
my stacks of underwear.

I will admit some bits of clay
are sticking to the wall.
I scarcely even notice them
and do not mind at all.
Beneath my bed there’s just a wedge
of last weeks apple pie,
and yet I have to clean my room...
I simply don’t know why.

Selected by, Exavier and Veronika

“We chose this poem because it had rhyme and it was also funny. It reminds me of having a mess in my room with everything on the floor.”

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so
much about this, like you wrote the book in it
or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is great
blog. A great read. I'll definitely be back.

I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.

Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more
useful than ever before.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However imagine if you added
some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could undeniably be one
of the most beneficial in its field. Terrific blog!

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured I'd
ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest
authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of the same topics
as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you're interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

I drop a leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a article on a site or if I have something to add to the conversation.
It is triggered by the passion communicated in the post I looked at.
And after this post "Why do I have to clean my room? a poem by, Jack Prelutsky".

I was excited enough to drop a commenta response ;-)
I actually do have a few questions for you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or do a few of these remarks look like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list every one of your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
