promise you'll try the finger thing!

Its time to put on my teachers hat
And teach you all the world is flat
You talk of meeting and sharing faces
I wish I could be in all those places

Nan and Doreen Peri playing scrabble
Not on the puter like I like to dabble
I put all of my money on Nanners to win
But to play in person puts on a new spin

Iíve heard stories of overseas meetings
To the logic of this rant that be cheating
But still when you live in a state so big
You cant run on over for someone you dig

Put your left fist up in the air
Palm facing you your skin's so fair
Point your index finger up to the sky
It's for nose picking I aint gonna lie

Now lay your thumb in a horizontal line
If youíve done this all youíre doing quite fine
Now see there is Texas right there in your hand
I live high on your ring finger near your wedding band




†The doctor said, "You're almost dead.
Don't eat green bananas no more."
The sick little monkey groaned and said,
"But that's what I 1-2 the 3-4."
from The Monkey--Shel Silverstein

Oh, walt... this is great! I just had to sing your title... but by the end of your poem, the tune had changed to "Deep in the heart of Texas!" *G*

Walt, This is so cool and creative, glad to know now where you live in Texas. Now when anyone mentions Texas I will look to my palm and know I have a clue.

Hey this is great Walt   I love it!!  

Yes, I am here, but I am dead, not alive,
my body goes on, my spirit has died
and I though alive, feel dead inside.
