Problem Solved - Poem #87




On the ground this evening, mosquitoes were nibbling on us.  In the air, bats circled, eating on high.  I wondered...how could I make those bats work for me?

Students - What little things make you crazy?  If you choose one imagine all of the ways you could make it funny, you just may have the start to a poem.  Or a story.  Or a comic.  Or even an invention!

  5. Hi Amy,

    Great poem and the illustration is a perfect match. I am trying to convince our daughter to put a bat house in their yard that is swarming with mosquitoes.
