Let's have a little word scrambling fun with today's writercize. I've selected a Shel Silverstein poem entitled The Acrobats from his collection Where the Sidewalk Ends, and I'd like you to write something new using only the words in the poem.
writing exercise: Scramble the words from "The Acrobats" by Shel Silverstein to come up with a new poem or phrase. You may repeat words, change verb tense, delete words, or add conjunctions such as "and" "but" "so" "if" "or" etc. ... but no other new words.

But to your nose, please!Up so high, just don't sneeze!
