WONDERS OF THE WORLD: Primary Poetry

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder.

 

What really happens when a pirate plunders?

I wonder what happens when you suck air from a floating balloon?

Do you blow up into the sky?

And land in a spaceship with a nasty disguise?

 

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder.

 

I do wonder about letting water flow around your house,

Flooding and splashing right through the walls.

Then switch on the freezer right I say,

And the whole house freezes right up and away!

So we ice skate around, graceful as dolphins by the bay.

 

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder.

 

What happens when a girrafe swallows spagetti?

Does it get tangled around him and create a wreck?

Or just slip like string right down his long neck?

 

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder.

 

If you were trapped in a solid block of ice,

And slipped downward right into the Niagara Falls.

What would happen if you suddenly hit a rock?

Would the block break and set you free,

Or squash you like a pie, with chocolate icing that is very tasty?

 

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder.

 

How does it feel when you are sent to the gallows?

Does it hurt with pain for the longing of the sun?

Or does it muffle the cries of help heard by no one?

 

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder.

What would happen if you met Robinson Crusoe and Friday?

Would you fall on them in shock?

Or would you tease and bully in a tone of mock?

 

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder.

 

If you had a pegasus,

Would you fly in the sky and reach for the stars?

Or would you let him graze and poop in a yard?

 

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder.

 

If a ghost rambled through your brain,

What would you do?

Would you squeal, shriek or shout in pain?

 

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder.

 

What if a dragon swallowed your parents?

Would you barge right into his mouth,

And live inside the dragon’s belly,

To have fun and watch a lot of telly?

 

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder.

 

What would be the wonders of the world?

What goes beyond the life of human beings as we know it.

If we step out of our enclosed space and into the wild?
