Bewilderment , USA
I was sitting around reminiscing about the dark ages ( the early years of PIP ) when I remembered a
poignantly written punny piece by Balladeer about a "Foo" bird, and thought maybe some of you were up to putting pun to poem. The usual any style any forum W/links, or post 'em here. My own meager contribution appears below. Hail Mary ( mea culpa )
A man went to the flower shop for peas,
not knowing of another place to look.
Just why will be revealed by degrees,
'twas vegetables for dinner he would cook.
The florist showed him flowers by the bunch,
with each the man just slowly shook his head
"Why these would hardly even do for lunch
mush less the dinner I must cook instead !"
And so it was the man didn't get his peas,
and all because he didn't know where to look.
That I should stoop so low surprises me,
( the devil made me do it by the book !)
The moral of this story is, you see,
you cannot see the florist for the peas.
