Tom and Holly

This poem is for Project OpenBook, a community-built children’s book. Details below.


Tom Foolery, Tom Foolery.
He stole young Holly’s jewelry.

Hid her earrings in a hole…
Ran her necklace up a pole…

He thought it jolly but that was folly.
‘Cause he hadn’t seen the grand finale.

Little did he know, Tom had pranked a pro
And would soon learn how a prank should go.

Then we all heard her say, “Nope, not today…”
Which means a lot from Holly Horseplay.

In just two blinks, Tom’s hi-jinx
Earned him Holly’s revenge hoodwinks.

“Just juke and jive, jump and dive…
Trying to get your undies off the hive.”
