Bubble Wrap -- a bubble wrap poem

Gregory K.

Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Snap! Snap! Snap!
We just got some bubble wrap!

Snap! Snap! Pop! Pop! Joy! Joy! Joy!
It’s not wrapping. It’s a toy!

Pop! Snap! Pop! Snap! Pop! Pop! Pop!
Never, ever gonna stop!

Pop! Pop! Snap! Snap! Fun! Fun! Fun!
Squish. Oh. Squish. No!
All done.

I'm posting an original poem each day in April in celebration of National Poetry Month. Links to this and other poems here on GottaBook (and I post all year round, because poetry is NOT just for April!) are collected over on the right of the blog under the headline "The Poems".

Very cute -- my kids will totally appreciate this one. And, I have to confess, I love bubble wrap, too. :-) Have you ever seen this:

Yes, Karen... I love the virtual bubble wrap! There's also a newish toy in Japan (blogged about here that's an electronic bubble popping device. Not quite the same to me, but still shows that the bubble wrap's appeal is pretty wide reaching!

Who can resist bubble wrap? Once, when my daughter was little, we had a huge sheet of it on the basement floor. I loved to hear the sound of SNAPS and POPS as she danced around on it. Great subject for a poem!
