Squishy Touch – Shel Silverstein Everything King Midas touched Turned to gold, the lucky fellow. Every single thing I touch Turns to raspberry Jell-O. 5Today I touched the kitchen wall (squish), I went and punched my brother Paul (splish), I tried to fix my bike last week (sploosh), And kissed my mother on the cheek (gloosh). I got into my overshoes (sklush), 10I tried to read the Evening News (smush), I sat down in the easy chair (splush), I tried to comb my wavy hair (slush). I took a dive into the sea (glush) – Would you like to shake hands with me (sklush)? A Light in the Attic – p. 53

Dirtiest Man In The World – Shel Silverstein Oh, I'm Dirty Dan, the world's dirtiest man, I never have taken a shower. I can't see my shirt--it's so covered with dirt, And my ears have enough to grow flowers. 5But the water is either a little too hot, Or else it's a little too cold. I'm musty and dusty and patchy and scratchy And mangy and covered with mold. But the water is always a little too hot, 10 Or else it's a little too cold. I live in a pen with five hogs and a hen And three squizzly lizards who creep in My bed, and they itch as I squirm, and I twitch In the cruddy old sheets that I sleep in. 15In you looked down my throat with a flashlight, you'd note That my insides are coated with rust. I creak when I walk and I squeak when I talk, And each time I sneeze I blow dust.
The thought of a towel and soap makes me howl, 20And when people have something to tell me They don't come and tell it--they stand back and yell it. I think they're afraid they might smell me. The bedbugs that leap on me sing me to sleep, And the garbage flies buzz me awake. 25They're the best friends I've found and I fear they might drown So I never go too near a lake. Each evening at nine I sit down to dine With the termites who live in my chair, And I joke with the bats and have intimate chats 30With the cooties who crawl in my hair. I'd brighten my life if I just found a wife, But I fear that will never be Until I can find a girl, gentle and kind, With a beautiful face and a sensitive mind, 35Who sparkles and twinkles and glistens and shines-- And who's almost as dirty as me.
