Oooh Look What I’ve Found!

I found this poem in my eldest book bag, I love it!

His copy didn’t have the author written on it but I think it’s by Judith Nicholls.

Teacher Said

You can use
Mumbled and muttered,
groaned, grumbled and uttered,
professed, droned or stuttered
…but don’t use SAID!

You can use
rant or recite,
yell, yodel or snort,
bellow, murmur or moaned,
you can grunt or just groan
… but don’t use SAID!

You can use
hum, howl and hail,
scream, screech, shriek or bawl,
squeak, snivel or squeal,
with a blood-curdling wail
…but don’t use SAID!
…SAID my teacher.
