Ya know? It's easy writin' poetry,
I do it all the time,
Though it's usually rediculous,
And sometimes it even rhymes.

Now most of my stuff is senseless,
But my conversations are too,
Some say that I'm incorrigible,
And I get rebuked by quite a few.

I usually ain't got too much to say,
And that ain't unusual for writers these days,
But criticism never gets me down,
I'm as good at sayin' nuthin as anyone around.

Now my teachers they all loved me,
I musta been one of their favorites,
They were always coming over,
Or on the phone with my parents!

Why they were at my house,
More than I ever showed up for school,
Notes to home for autographs,
Yep, they really thought I was cool.

But now I are more smarter,
With children of my own,
My daughter's a perfect angel,
My son's another Toe!

So now ya know about Toerag,
And why my mind's not quite sound,
It's like my parents told me,
What ya do comes back around!

I love this, Toe! *S* I think all of us heard our parents say "I hope you have a kid that's just like you!" when they'd reached their breaking point of exasperation.... In your son, your parents got their wish! LOL.

And who would be so brash as to rebuke someone as perfect as you? *G*

You kidding, John? Belle WANTS a lover like Toe. Hell, she wants TOE!! She'll be able to sing that musical "I Got Plenty of Nuttin'".

Toe, your Nothing is a lot of people's Something, so we'll settle for Anything. I would rather to have nothing from you that something from anyone else.

Very funny, Toe! I heard that after you graduated from school (you did right?) all your former teachers had a party in your honor. They burned your books, took turns smashing your locker with a sledge hammer and got smashed! They must have been so sad to see you leave!

Can you imagine the karmic backlash of a lifetime being Toe! Talk about needing a ban on nuclear bomb testing! LOL! Sir Toe… your much ado about nothing is truly something and we're all glad you share.

Ya know....actually most of the teachers had a hard time keeping a straight face when they were yelling at me. One teacher was "shaking" me and saying she thought the devil had a hold of me....I told her I did too? Then there was the teacher that caught me in the ladies teacher's lounge dropping bandaids in the slots of the kotex machine. Then there was the time I had all my pals and their pals bring wind up alarm clocks to school and set them all at 1:30 p.m. in their lockers, and the time I took all the keys with the letters on them on the old manual typewriters off and swapped them all over the keyboard for the beginning typing class and the time in a study hall with about 200 kids and this big ugly guy was sitting across the table from me next to the head cheerleader ( a real snobby type bitch), and he farted so loud it shook the window blinds and I yelled "Good Grief Charlotte! There's a bathroom right down the hall yanno!..She didn't come back to school for days....and when we used to take birdshot out of shotgun shells and flick them up on window blinds and they'd "tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick" all the way down the windows, and then, and then...oh well, really, I was a fairly well behaved kinda kid most of the time.......

If what you say is 'nuthin' then I think there's 'nuthin' better!
