French poems for children chose this amusing poem because it just sums up that when things go wrong, they can go wrong in a big way and we all have days like these, but hopefully we can smile afterwards about the silly things that happen. Today I had a rotten day. I banged my elbow, barked my shin.
A welt is forming on my chin. My pencil poked me in the thigh. I got an eyelash in my eye. C2007 Kenn Nesbitt all rights reserved. Reprinted by permission of the author.
