I got pissed and went to lunch,
Had six beers but wasn't drunk.
Had a few more, time flew by,
Thought I'd better call work and tell a lie.

Got my pal on the telephone,
Told him I had a touch of polio,
Won't be back today for sure,
Going to Hooter's to find a cure.

Headed to Hooter's, when I got there,
The "nurse" put me in intensive care,
Take "two" of "these", you'll be alright,
And put me on a clear liquid diet.

Your "nurse" was so grateful for the break
(She'd had all of that sailor she could take)
Now I know this procedure is above board and pure (?)
So I'll innocently wish you a very fast cure!

I understand now why all my volunteering has been for naught! *G* Great poem... and enjoy that clear liquid diet... We are talking beer here, right? LOL

They say if you've got polio
Rub yourself down with Oleo.
Supposedly, there's something in
That little tub of margarine
That hits those symptoms real hard
So put some butter on that lard!

Mmmm ... hospital food ... hey,do we get those little jello cups with the suspicious-looking chunks of "fruit" in them?

A "beer" liquid diet (hmm, beer -- clear..?) Oh well, close enough for me!

Chuckles, Toe, as usual ... thanks for the pick-me-up.
