Ya know I love reading,
It passes the time of day,
I've been reading really short books,
Like "Spotted Owl Recipes" by the E.P.A.

Now the Amish Phone Directory,
Only takes 'bout five seconds,
Mike Tyson's Guide to dating etiquette,
Took less than 15 minutes.

The "Engineer's Guide To Fashion"
Was interesting to say the least,
Amelia Earhart's guide to Oceans,
Ends quite unexpectantly.

Kevorkian's Speeches on Motivation,
Is a rather small collection,
George Foreman's Book of Baby Names,
Seemed repetitive-they're all the same?

But the easiest book I've read of late,
Was "John Bobbit's book on Dating,
The Chapter on Sexual Positions-
Was quite short, as is his current condition!

ROFLMAO... I guess it wouldn't take very long to read those books! I especially love the Amish Phone Directory and Foreman's baby names.... yell "George" in that house and everyone pays attention! *G*
