Do You C What I C? – Podcast Episode

Every now and then, I like to write an alliterative poem like this one just to see how much fun I can have with a single letter of the alphabet. Some other examples include my poems Zzzzz from my book The Aliens Have Landed at Our School! and To B or Not to B from My Cat Knows Karate.

In fact, I’ve even written an entire lesson on how you can write your own alliteration poems, which you can find here.

In this case, I decided to play with the letter C. Because the letter C is pronounced just like the words “see” and “sea,” I thought I would write a poem about how many sea creatures I could see doing silly things. I hope you enjoyed the result.

Do You C What I C?

I saw a crawdad camping
and a crab in a canoe.
I watched a clamshell clapping
and I heard a catfish coo.

I caught a clumsy clownfish
in a coral-colored cape,
and came across a cod who claimed
he couldn't cook a crepe.

I saw a cocky crocodile
play cribbage with a crane.
I even watched a cuttlefish
consume a candy cane.

You could be kind of curious
how all this came to be.
It happened when I went to C
to C what I could C.
