Well keep your body and soul together
As you flip among these lines,
As i boldly exclaim about
‘What puts in me mind’.
So I am told what they say
Not all words do mean as we know;
For i have ‘strained my every nerve’
Yet i never ‘get my ducks in a row’.
Words join together as one and one
And form a reasonable sentence too,
But when ‘two and two are put together’
What a ‘dog’s breakfast they do’!!
A mighty lie is what we say
When we ’move the Earth and Heaven’
And how can we ‘give a piece of our mind’
I say everything is at ‘sixes and sevens’.
Oh it ‘does not hold water’ when
I say a ‘dog’s hair bit me’
And assuringly if your ‘blood ran cold’
Very well dead is what you’d be !!
Yet still we hold it ‘as good as gold’
That to come ‘second best’ is but a defeat
And shocked i am to know this now
That there’s no ground under my feet !!
Oh i really would ‘set the Thames on fire’
Besides the snake if the ‘blood could creep’
And clearly it is besides the mark
To say a ‘wolf’s in the clothing of sheep’
And so i keep at ‘arm’s length’
All these dreary words that doom
My head when i try to resolve
What does an ‘elephant do in a room’
Well men are made of flesh and blood
But some say they are of straw as well
Yes ‘pigs can fly’, i think they might
If a person’s ‘head could swell’.
So amused i say to all that read
Boldly i shall exclaim
When your knowledge depends on these naughty words
Hope you keep some that you tame !!
And when shall be the time so right
Laugh, put them on paper together
Who knows how the misfits too
Dress your cap with another feather !!
