There was an old hermit named Jack
Who lived in a tar paper shack
     Town kids would all bug him
     And frequently mug him
When he'd stroll in the woods out back

His friend was a miser name Bill
Who lived in a house on the hill
     The kids would name-call him
     And frequently maul him
When he'd stroll in the woods by the mill

So, Jack and Bill marched off the hill
To catch the city sluggers
     They grabbed them fair
     Then did declare
"We caught the little muggers!"

Earth Angel,

I really, really, enjoy your poems. This one is very cute and so very "colourful"

I like your outlook on all your poetry and how you express it.

Can't wait for the next one!

Sincerely,
SimplyGold

Earl is digging through the archives...

Good guy, you!

Well I feel kind of funny being thanked.  Earth Angel is the person who wrote it after all.
