Funny Poems By Shel Silverstein

There are some really funny poems by Shel Silverstein that I always enjoy reading. He wrote many. So the ones that are funny to you may not be as funny to someone else. I will look at a few of my top choices.


One of my favorite poems by Shel Silverstein, is called Sick. I think it's absolutely hilarious. It talks about a child not wanting to go to school. The child states the many illnesses and diseases that it is experiencing. Until the end. Well I don't want to spoil it for you. So you will just have to read it yourself. At Poemhunter this poem received 51 votes that gave it a score of 9.7/10. Now that's quite impressive. In my opinion, it deserves this score.


Another funny poem by Shel is called, Cloony The Clown. This one talks about a clown that want to be funny but nobody thinks that he is funny. Until half way through the poem. Cloony says something that makes everyone laugh. This poem keeps on going and going, but it's ok because it rhymes really well.

Well, those are the two funny poems by Shel Silverstein that I chose as my top favorite. You may judge for yourself. Enjoy!
