A Gem in our Day

I'd be the first to tell you that A Beka curriculum is a workbook curriculum. I don't think it's the workbook of all workbooks because I haven't seen them all. I like ABeka because it's colorful. It's all laid out - and, well, It works for us. (We're using it for Phonics, math and writing) (though, we're gradually heading into copy work)
So when we have a gem that makes us laugh - we just soak it in.
Is it possible to soak in a gem?
I probably need a better comparison.
Since this made Mini-Me laugh - I deem it worthy of sharing.
From the ABeka "Handbook for Reading"
A title-less poem about water.
(partially written by John R. Crossland)
Water has no taste at all;
Water has no smell;
Water's in the waterfall,
In pump, and tap, and well.
I like it when I'm thirsty
I like it when I'm hot.
I like it when I'm dirty
(And even when I'm not).
I like the feel of water
Tickling my toes.
But I do not like water
When it gets in my nose!

I agree. It is a funny little poem. I too use Abeka just for Language Arts and Math. My son fell in love with the dancing skunk on the cover of the 1st grade book and that is how we chose Abeka. (Scary, I know. You aren't supposed to judge a book by its cover.)
PS. I do like the new bling,bling
