I keep getting asked if I have any poetry online suitable for younger people, say Primary aged or year 7. I am trying to make more of my stuff more accessible and in general cut out swearing etc. I swear a lot. I always have, especially when I’m angry and I write a lot when I’m angry about things. But my gran doesn’t like it and I don’t so much either! In the meantime, here are some of the poems I have online which I know teachers have used with Primary school groups. I hope that’s helpful.
If you listen to these and I’ve missed something ie a swear word, please let me know!
If you are a teacher and you think of others, let me know!! I’m currently putting all my poems for 5 year olds together and hope to have them up soon too x

Did you realise that your child friendly poem Fruit and Veg, ends with the words FUCK YOU – as that (Chris Rock?) joke ends – which also isnt really child friendly – maybe an edit is worthwhile and a new link – sorry, not being critical, but you did ask.
Thank you so so much, ah I completely forgot about that skit. Thank you x
