repost from Community Poem #2

I used to be taller
Close to six feet
And needing a job
I dressed really neat

The Manager looked at
My meager resume
And told me the job
He gladly would pay

He gave me a shovel
And an apron that fit
And told me to clean up
The elephant's...pit

Oh, I used to be taller
Five-nine or more
But I can't really say
That's the case anymore

So I slaved for that
Tulgy old nit
Up to my knees in
The elephant...pit

As I was toiling
Oh, what a lark
It got hot and steamy
And suddenly dark

But I was still tall
My spine wasn't bent
Still dressed really fine
A high-class gent

Oh, the tribulations
Of my poor little spine
For I was sat upon
Four or five times

I can't leave now
'Spite the dung I've dug
For I'm hooked on show-biz
It's in my blood

In your blood I'd say so! That stuff permeates just about everything after awhile, showbiz that is.
