It was one of those days?

When I was a kid getting driven to school with NPR on the radio in the late 80's early 90's, there was this sort of interstitial poetry series that often played. I googled for a while finding nothing. I was hoping to find a collection or even just the author/reader's name.

The poems themselves all had a similar structure and reused certain lines throughout, similar to a mad libs almost, though obviously a bit more complex.
The following examples are pulled from foggy memories:
It started with "It was one of those and the ________ was _______."
There was also "Down by the fireplug _______ was singing ______by the _______."
I also remember a line "salt and pepper hair, you're no spring chicken."
The purpose of this search is for a mother's day gift.
