A Poem for this week?

'twas early in November,

Or, it could have been December.

I was walking down the street , in Drunken Pride.

When My knees began to stutter

I lay down in the Gutter

and a pig came up and lay down at my side.

As I lay there, in the gutter,

with my head all of a flutter

I chanced to hear a passing Lady say

"You can tell a man who boozes

By the Company he Chooses!"

And the pig got up,

and, slowly, walked away!

I remember my Father reading that out loud. I believe he was reading from a book called 'Verse and Worse'.

Re: A Poem for this week?

Here's one for next week Ted........

Last night I held a little hand, so dainty and so sweet;
I thought my heart would surely break, so wildly did it beat...

No other hand in all the world would greater solace bring;
Than that sweet hand I held last night......


Four Aces and a King.....

Reminds me of an episode of the Chase when Anne Hegarty said she had driven through the contestant's area and it smelt of manure. Quick as a flash the contestant suggested that next time she should get out of her car.
