Poetry Friday: Jack Prelutsky

This Friday, I've chosen a Jack Prelutsky poem, from A Pizza the Size of the Sun, in honor of his appointment as Children's Poet Laureate.

This poem, "Chuck," really speaks to me (unfortunately):


I'm Chuck, the chore evader
and adept procrastinator.
I've got a lot of strategies--
I'll demonstrate them later.

The Poetry Foundation has two Prelutsky-related links up today: Karen Glenn writes of the "wit and wisdom" of Prelutsky and there's a Prelutsky audio file available on site's front page.
Liz B. of A Chair, a Fireplace and a Tea Cozy has a creative roundup this week.
