Excuse (Half Baked)

Post by Philip G Bell on 2007-10-24, 08:11

From my collection of Humour and Nonsense "Half Baked"

I leapt from the tooth of a Tiger
Into the mouth of a Great White
And there, I slept, all night
Until the early dawn did break

Stretching upon my mattress tongue
I rose upon an Albatross into blue skies
Passing on route through clouds of butterflies
That tickled my nose making me sneeze

And as I sneezed I slipped and fell
And slid right down a Giraffeís neck
And wondered to myself, what the heck
Am I doing here upon itís back

And so I climbed down to the ground
But fell inconveniently into an open hole
Left by an ant, God bless itís soul
My fall was broken by piles of socks

Piles of socks? I admit I wondered!
But in my rush to move right on, I hurried off
The cold dark tunnel had induced a cough
No time to wait for Iíll be late

And so you see, my reason Sir
Itís why, and to be honest upon this date
I have to admit, my reason, for being late
Please forgive, itís just this once.

So glad you liked it. When I was at school (back in the dark ages) a teacher once commented about my excuses and my imagination, so I have tried to put both to good use!
