Mr Adverb vs Mrs Adjective Poem is a didactive poem to help teach about adverbs and adjectives. The underlined words are adverbs and the bold words are adjectives.
Mr. Adverb and Miss Adjective
were having a major feud.
She said telling people how and when
to do everything is rude.
Mr. Adverb totally disagreed.
If she didn’t work so slowly,
then there would not be such a need
to tell her to work more quickly.
“Oh, why don’t you just pay heed.”
Miss Adjective was furious.
She was just plain raving mad.
“You are a horrible, crazy, bossy man.
Why do you have to be so bad?”
Mr. Adverb didn’t understand.
Work more carefully, cautiously, and correctly.
Everything seemed so unplanned.
Arrive promptly, punctually, frequently,
or, “You might have to be canned.”
Miss Adjective was agitated, and wanted to be free.
To be bossed around was unacceptable,
so she issued a stern decree.
“Stop bothering me at work Mr. Adverb
or I certainly will flee.”
Mr. Adverb didn’t believe her threat.
He thought she was going mental.
She needs to think more clearly,
and stop being so descriptively judgemental.
Miss Adjective became anxious, annoyed, and angry
at this awful and wicked man.
It was way past the time
to execute her daring plan.
Quickly, decisively, and bravely
she ran defiantly out the workplace door.
That domineering, demonic dictator
will boss her cruelly no more.
