Inkless Poems




Illustration by Elizabeth Bushey

Stinky Pinky

Stinky Pinky had no friends.
He couldn’t understand, and then
One compassionate person tried
To show to Pinky,
Brought him aside
Splashed warm water
And lavender soap.
Offered him bath towels,
A hairbrush and hope.

Pinky now is stinky no more.
Now nobody likes him
Because he’s a bore.
