A well needed rest, I was sound asleep,
It had been one hell of a day.
Then I heard a knock about three o'clock,
Rolled over-ignored-slept away.

My wife awoke and yelled in my ear;
"Aren't ya gonna go and see who's there?"
Got up and staggered down the stairs,
To find a drunk in desperate despair.

He slurred out; "Can ya give me a push?"
My reply was direct and quite clear;
"It's three o'clock in the morning ya lush,
Get your drunk ass out of here!"

Went back to bed, my wife asked me;
"Who was knocking at the door?"
I said just a drunk, needing a push,
I told him to leave and knock no more!"

She said that wasn't nice-go back and see,
If I could assist the poor man-
Got back outta bed, back down the stairs,
To do what ever I can.

I looked out the door, still unable to see,
Yelled out, "Hey do you still need a push?"
He replied, "Yes I sure do, would you please?"
I said; "Where are ya man? I can't see past the big bush?"

He said he was next to the flowerbed,
But I still couldn't see a damn thing,
I went out into the yard, and my face turned blood red,
When I found the drunk on my little girl's swing.

As I was leaving work yesterday, I saw one of my co-workers (who is normally impeccably dressed GQ material completely unaccustomed to sweat *G*) pushing a broom in an "all hands on deck" preparation for a major event. As soon as the word "push" came into my mind, I thought of this poem, went back upstairs, and printed it off... and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the read and the break! *G*

So now you've got a LOOOOOOOOONG line of people waiting for a swing, Toe!! LOL. You'll have no problem whatsoever working off that adrenalin surge. *G* Thanks for the grins!
