I was walking in the park on day,
And much to my surprise.
Out jumped a bunch of lunatics,
Each one was in disguise.

Each had on a name tag,
And much to my chagrin.
I knew every single name,
That was entered in.

Marg was doing cartwheels,
As Liz was in a pose.
Denise had a candlestick,
EEEEEWWWWWW
She put it up her nose!!

Andrew was melting crayons,
Painting on Mike's face.
Can't say what was painted,
Would be deleted in this place.

Rex was on the park bench,
playing with his wand.
Robert stood beside him,
Hoping to obscond.

Devine was swinging from a tree,
Banana in her mouth.
Nan was on a higher branch,
Trying to fly south.

Sea sauntered up to me,
And looked me in the eye.
Told me she was superman,
And she could never die.

Chris was eating alphabets,
Arranging them in rhyme
Toe would run right through them,
Laughing all the thyme.

suthern was in a trash can,
Knitting little kilts.
Rainbow girl was by the pond
Playing in the silt.

u_gene was on the monkey bars,
Yodeling into space.
Martie and hoot_owl,
Were in a three legged race.
(Just the two of them????)

In the midst of this confusion,
I was totally aghast.
There was another ME,
Teaching fishing class.

I  looked around in wonder,
My eyes near out my head.
I turned around, got out of there,
Went home and back to bed!!

Marilyn meet some lunatics,
lounging in the park that day.
She should have turned and run
but she chose to stay.

Too late to run for cover,
as you try a hasty retreat.
Marilyn is now dreaming
of the loonies she did meet.

She ran home at last
pulled the covers over her head.
Can't escape the loonies
we're jumping on your bed !
