Rosie’s poem inspired by Michael Rosen

Rosie watched Michael Rosen perform ‘Chocolate Cake’ and wrote her own version about carrots. We love Rosie’s vivid imagination!

Carrots by Rosie

I absolutely hate carrots,

There so crunchy and raw,

If there was anything worse than carrots,

Then I have never seen it before.

Every single Wednesday when mother cooks us tea,

I snatch a plastic bag,

And when we our eating,

One by one put them in the bag.

 

Thursday morning we go and see the horses,

With no one watching I feed them the carrots they love them,

Wednesday again so I grab the bag and put it in my pocket,

Thursday morning I am so hungry so I look in the fridge but OH No !! just what did I see, carrots, carrot stew, carrot cake, carrot yoghurt and carrot juice.

I look in all the cupboard but everything is carrots.

Soon mum comes down,

“oh Mum where has all the food gone ?”

“it’s in the fridge and the cupboards silly !” she replied

“is there anything but carrots? “ I ask

“No” she said

Now all I eat is carrots, to be honest they are really not that bad,

But the horses still get the crunchy yucky ones.

  1. Rosie, your poem made me laugh! I love the line ‘just what did I see, carrots, carrot stew, carrot cake, carrot yoghurt and carrot juice.’ I can imagine the horror at seeing a fridge FULL of carrots. Wonderful writing. I am sure your writing will inspire others – just as Michael Rosen’s writing inspired you.
