Thread Name: Really Really Important Poem
Subject: RE: BS: REALLY REALLY IMPORTANT POEM
As I was letting down my hair
I met a man who didn't care.
He didn't care again today--
I love 'em when they get that way!
Sure, deck your lower limbs in pants,
Yours are the legs, my sweeting;
You look divine as you advance ...
But have you seen yourself retreating?
(Ogden Nash again)
In the well that Father built her
Auntie fell; we must buy a filter.
Lord [forgotten!] tried to fix the elctric light;
It struck him dead, and serve him right!
It is the duty of the wealthy man
To give employment to the artisan.
(Ditto--please offer corrections if poss.)
