Shanna In The Sauna
by Shel Silverstein

“Come into the sauna.”
“No thank you, I don’t wanna.”
“There’s an iguana in the sauna….”
“I still don’t wanna.”
“There’s a piranha in the sauna….”
“Now I really don’t wanna.”
“OK, the iguana just ate the piranha,
And the shark just ate the iguana,
So now you can come into the sauna.”
“Now I‘m never gonna.”

    This reminds me of when grandma and I came to visit you in Peru. There was a snake by the tank by the commode. I really had to go! But there was a snake by the tank, I REALLY had to go so the snake will have to take what’s gonna blow!(Okay I’m no Shel Silverstein, just getting ready for the poetry slam we’re going to require for Northwoods 2012!
