I went to the lumber store,
To buy myself a two-by-four,
Found a piece of fresh cut pine,
Tied it to my car with twine.
When I got home, did twine untie,
For the first time, then did spy,
A knot.
I'd bought a piece of knotty pine,
Now I'm knot one whose prone to whine,
But knotty pine, it just don't work,
You might think is just a quirk,
It's knot.
I drove back to lumber store,
Said I want this pine no more,
May I have my money back,
And put this board back in wood stack?
The clerk replied, it's your tough luck,
With knotty pine, you now are stuck,
Its knot
Out problem, you should have looked,
Before you bought, your goose is cooked.
Cooked goose I yelled, you stupid clerk,
I'm knot a chef, you ignorant jerk.
Was kicked out of the lumber store,
So home I went with two-by-four.
I guess I'll keep my knotty pine,
It did no good to fuss and whine,
While maybe knot best wood I've had,
My knotty pine, it's knot so bad,
It's knot.

You knot like knotty pine you say
how could you simply pine away
for perfect pine with knot a sign
of character to make it fine.

I say give knotty pine a try
its great for rustic look of time
my kitchen cabinets were made to stay
for fifty years the knotty way.

Well, of course, you know me - I read this as "naughty" pine!  LOL  This was fabulous!  Gave me a good chuckle too!  You are talented, and so very uh...broad in your talents!  Great variety you offer!  That's what I was trying to say....

(giggling uncontrollably)

And here I was expecting something serious and classic -- this was precious, Mike -- thanks for the smile.

--Kess


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

Mike,

This is sure one knot meant for a keeper, I know I could use it later. I'd steal it but you got stuck and had to keep-er. LOL
