My Superhero Band-aid -- a band-aid poem/a bandaid poem/a boo-boo poem

Gregory K.

My superhero band-aid
Takes all my pain away --
I put it on a cut I got when I went out to play.

My superhero band-aid
Is barely hanging on….
I’ve worn it 18 days, but still, it’s why the pain is gone!

It's a Poetry Friday poem dedicated to all the parents who've tried to peel off a band-aid TOO EARLY! The Two Writing Teachers are on the poetry roundup today. Check it out here.

Ah! I just went through this with an Elmo band-aid! You gave voice to exactly the struggle we went through...though ours had fewer words and more tantrum-y tears! Also, there was no cut or scrape in my house, just the sincere desire of a toddler to keep Elmo on his body at all times...

Mom never let us have printed band-aids at home, so I only got those at school, and BOY did I want to hang onto them!

Good one! Now we need one about the super heroine bandaid that cures the problem the minute the wrappers hit the floor. Our girls insist on bandaids for the tiniest injuries but happily pull them off and discard them almost immediately. I'm pretty sure the super-powers are disabled if the wrappers go in the garbage.
