A poem about the life of a boy made from rubber.
Bouncy. Bouncy. Bouncy. I’m the boy who’s made of rubber. I bounce all over school, and then I bounce all over mother.
From floor to ceiling, wall to wall, I bounce down every empty hall.
I bounce on sidewalks. Bounce on seas. Bounce. Bounce. Bounce up to the trees.
I bounce atop my sister’s head. I bounce atop my brother’s bed.
I bounce from state to state. I bounce from town to town. I bounce from star to star and then I bounce back to the ground.
I’m the boy who’s made of rubber. I bounce from sky to dirt. And it would be the perfect life, If only it didn’t hurt!
