The Tale of Mrs. Kalamazoo- A Poem by Jake G.

I shall tell you of Mrs. Kalamazoo

She was a teacher of Jimmy Jet

And when she heard his tale, she said Woo!

(She heard his story from a vet)

She thought, “Well golly-goo!”

If he can become a TV,

than I can be a calculator.

I can do it too!

She went on the calculator

and stayed on it all night

Till she grew a screen on her forehead

and said, “Oh calculator!”

“What did you do?”

A ON button here

and a + button there.

Oh dear!

So now, in the Museum of Math

There lies a big black calculator

And next to the picture of Mrs. Kalamazoo

it says, “Don’t take this path!”

  1. I really liked your poem. I particularly liked the part about the lady turning into a calculator; especially the last line. I see that we both like to read Shel’s stories. I have “Where the Sidewalk Ends” and if you like, you can borrow it
