‘Skeeters bother me tonight.
When they bite me it gives me quite a fright.
I wish they’d get away.
They buzz and bite my face each day.
I need some ointment on my nose
For the bump upon it grows.
The ‘skeeter didn’t survive its attack
For I hit it right back with a smack
And now that ‘skeeter is smushed.
I am bored
So here I sit,
Writing lines just like a twit.
I know I oughta get a life–
At least according to my wife.
But I am bored,
And she’s ignored.
I’ve scraped all the scum from between my toes,
I’ve picked all the boogers from my nose,
So write I must,
For I’m out of crust.
But as I write, my crust grows back
And then I’ll have another snack.
Rabbits hopping ‘cross the road,
Perhaps a flattened, short-eared toad.
Chef Towtruck serves
Our hors d’oeuvres,
And at the Vulture Coffee Shop,
Truck-tread Tea with cream to top!
And now our meal is complete.
We’ve had quite enough to eat
Of glorious, juicy, rotten meat.
