January 20th…“WHAT SILLY SAYING DID YOUR FATHER CONTRIBUTE TO A CONVERSATION THAT MADE EVERYBODY LAUGH?”
POEM – “Mr. Toot To Boot” by N. Elliott Noorlun
Some folks are tutors, Who live to teach,
Yet, I know a tooter, Who’d steal all speech.
That guy was my dad, Who loved a good joke,
Be it lads or lasses, He’d gladly poke,
At traditions that called, For style and class,
Except when our Pa, Just had to pass gas!
There at supper table, With friends all around,
A “BRAPPP” of a noise, A most flappery sound!
Mom would then chastise, But Dad would just smile,
And then Dad’d say, In jokester style,
He’d spin in his chair, With accusing sneer,
And say, “Who let those darn dogs in here!!!”
We’d all bust out laughing, He knew of his guilt,
And yet we were grateful, For the joy he “spilt”!!! 😉
