Balladeer loved to write
It gave him pleasure and delight,
As in a fever he was gripped,
Writin' down poetic script.

He wrote while standing on one foot,
Then wrote about it in a book,
And when the book was finally over,
He'd change his foot and write another.

His writing was so microscopic,
That he could write on any topic
On the smallest little suckers,
Like postage stamps and his pecker.
While on his finger nails well bitten,
Were silly rhymes that he had written.

He hardly had an inch of skin,
Where something wasn't written in.
To see him standing in the nude
You'd think perhaps he'd been tattoo'd
And you could read him like a book,
If he'd let ya take a look.

Some areas of his annotations
I'll leave to your imaginations,
But I have seen a poetry line,
Running up and down his spine,
Around his neck, down to his heart,
Ends with an exclamation mark!
And there were poems around his calves,
'Bout fruit and cuttin' down Toerag.
While every little squirm or wriggle,
Exposed a tiny poem or scribble.
In his armpit where 'hair'd been there,
He wrote one 'bout LongJohn the Sailor.

Sky writing was a later fad,
His memory then was getting bad,
He stopped the plane to dot an "i"
And tumbled from the word filled sky.

Well after all, he'd had his time,
Chastising Toe across the sky
His friends were sad and wore black cloth,
But finally, they wrote him off.

ROFLMAO ... and what a piece of work !! ... Toe, you're like some wine ... the older, the better ! ...

and if you have the opportunity you should watch "The Pillow Book" from Peter Greenaway ... it will give a new meaning to "read him like a book"

Well, all I can say is the angels in Heaven are also gonna be falling from the sky if they read this poem....laughing their halos off!! You really did it this time, really got in with a goodie. I hate Mondays 'cause I know you've had the whole weekend to come up with something. Now I gotta go around all day explaining to my customers why I'm giggling under my breath. ROTFLMAO! That last line should be a hall of fame somewheres. As soon as I get done laughing, I'm coming after you, ya know that. I've already begun writing it down on a body part appropriate for the receipient....and it's a LONG poem. But, for now, enjoy your moment. You deserve it.
