The scent of tobacco from a man’s pipe,
Pine martens scour my sink with steel wool,
Chester Allen Arthur was not a snipe,
But for a time he had some pull.
When was Casey at the bat?
My friend drove drunk and had to pick up litter;
Would Mudville have been better off
With a designated hitter?
Significant dust in an insignificant world,
Right past a museum,
Prince says maybe we can do the Twirl.
I did not mean it when I said,
JFK was never dead;
From that subject I stay away,
Because I fear the CIA.
Cars have bodily fluids,
Marsupials are cute;
Some people worship Druids;
Keith Jackson uses verbs like “Scoot.”
Tony Orlando was underrated,
Barry Manilow is often hated,
But on the hog he’s living high.
My grandpa may have been in the Klan,
We once played Kick the Can;
Is Food Court where you seek redress when you digest bad yams?
I do don’t like green eggs and ham.
Whiskers on kittens,
Raindrops on roses;
Do they make prosthetics
For Bloodhound noses?
Shoney’s, Waffle House, and Sambo’s,
Speckled chocolate Easter eggs;
Donna Summer on the radio,
In our refrigerator is a pair of L’eggs.
Of this thing called life,
What is the gist?
Love and strife,
Nuclear Weasel Mist.
