JUMP ROPE

DUMB, DUMB DODO CATCH ME IF YOU CAN.
I CAN RUN FASTER THAN (NAME OF PERSON) CAN.
THEN AFTER THE CALLER RECITES THE POEM, THE PERSON
THE CALLER PICKS HAS TO JUMP IN THE ROPE AS MANY
TIMES AS THE CALLER DOES. IF THE PERSON MISSES
THE CALLER PICKS SOMEONE ELSE. IF THE CALLER
MISSES THE PERSON WHO THE CALLER PICKED IS NOW
THE CALLER. IF THE CALLER IS TAGGED BY THE PERSON,
THE CALLER IS OUT AND THE PERSON IS NOW THE CALLER.
