Flying Lessons – A Video Poem


“Stretch your arms!
Straighten legs!
Open your mouth!
Eat boiled eggs!

“Look ahead!
Do not fear!
Flap your arms!
Shake your rear!

“Be prepared and
just jump off!
Avoid choking,
do not cough!

“Do not fall,
catch the breeze!
Do not stop,
do not sneeze!”

So I went and
found a cliff.
Arms were ready,
eyes were stiff.

I jumped off and
caught the breeze,
flapped my arms,
didn’t sneeze.

Oh no! I fell into a tree!
The birds laughed – what a blaster!
My little brother is, indeed,
a terrible taskmaster.
