Today, I'd like to share a poem written by Sandra Boynton. Okay, technically it's a song, but I've seen lots of other bloggers use song lyrics for Poetry Friday, so I thought I'd give that a try.
If you're a regular reader of this blog, you'll know that I'm a graduate student studying library science. And I work in an independent store as a children's bookseller (and a book buyer). And I'm the mom of a small child. And my husband is also in graduate school (and he works full time). And I just started an internship at a local library.
So, here's my family's theme song/poem for the semester:
by Sandra Boynton
very very busy
and we've got a lot to do
and we haven't got a minute
to explain it all to you"
See Sandra Boynton's wonderful album/book Philadelphia Chickens for the rest of the song. Or listen to a sample of this song here... sung by the ever fabulous Kevin Kline. For you musical theater fans out there, BusyBusyBusy is a parody/homage of Gilbert and Sullivan's patter songs.
For a good laugh, see Sandra Boynton's website.
The Poetry Friday roundup today is at HipWriterMama.
Update: I just found an ANIMATED version of the BusyBusyBusy song on Sandra Boynton's website. It's fabulous. Think Kevin Kline as a chicken dressed in a suit and tie.
