IHOP

Since my own pancakes always come out like slop

I hopped and hopped and hopped all the way to IHOP

but as soon as I got there I hopped onto some slippery syruppy glop

and after flopping  instead  of being helped up,

I was mopped.

There Their They’re

Out of despair

Many a teacher wants to pull out there their hair

For no matter how many lessons on the subject their there are

There They’re besides themselves that there their little dears

Always confuse there, their, and they’re-

so to those teachers all  I can say with compassion is “there, their, they’re.”
