Wednesday Whimsy

The latest installment from Kids Pick the Funniest Poems, Chapter 4 "Friends".  This chapter is not as fun as some of the others quite frankly.  Since I am committed to one poem from each chapter, this one will have to do.

                                  Suzanna Socked Me Sunday
                                        by Jack Prelutsky

                               Suzanna socked me Sunday,
                               she socked me Monday, too,
                               she also socked me Tuesday,
                               I was turning black and blue.

                               She socked me double Wednesday,
                               and Thursday even more,
                               but when she socked me Friday,
                               she began to get me sore.

                               "Enough's enough," I yelled at her,
                               "I hate it when you hit me!"
                               "Well, then I won't" Suzanna said—
                               that Saturday, she bit me.
