A New Poem, called All Kinds Of Kids!

All Kinds of Kids!

The batty and the chatty

The scatty and the catty

The dippy and the lippy

The gobby and the snobby

The loopy and the droopy

The soppy and the foppy

The feared and revered

And one kid with a beard.


The weedy and the seedy

The stupid and the needy

And the ones who like footy

The ones as soft as putty

The ones who think they’re hard

The ones you disregard

The squirmers and the squigglers

The weirdos and the gigglers.


The grotty and the snotty

The clever and Whatevah

The dreamy and the screamy

The ones who make you weary

The ones who talk like crazy

The ones who are just lazy

The ones we all adore

The ones who are a bore.


The wary and the scary

The freaky and the geeky

The sneaky and the leaky

The stinky and the slinky

The spotty and the dotty

The frumpy and the trumpy

The posers and the losers

The don’t-know-what-to-choosers


The wearing and uncaring

The nerdy and the wordy

The pretty and the gritty

The smiley and the wily

The brave and the dashing

The ones just out of fashion

The ones who chew their nails

The ones who tell big tales

The ones who run in races

The ones who pull daft faces

The ones who yell and shout

The ones who jump about

The ones who love to banter

The one who still loves Santa

The drifter and the grafter

The ones who love laughter.


The lumpy and the grumpy

The happy and the clappy

The cheery and the sneery

The sweet and the sweaty

The ghastly and the ghostly

The hairy and the sweary

The ones who come each day

The ones who stay away.


The ones who like the telly

The ones who are quite smelly

The ones who talk in class

The ones who never pass

The dopey and the ropey

The hapless and the gormless

The ones who like to natter

The ones with chat up patter


All kinds of kids

Everyone unique

Every one of them matters

Every day and every week

Got to help each other

Got to pull through

Don’t care if you like it

It’s what you got to do.

David Harmer July 2012
