A Drunken Clown Poet

This is really kind of a sad story But please sit yourself down For the words I'm going to bestow upon you Will make you feel your watching a drunken clown As I bow to gracefully greet you My silly hat suddenly slips from my head As I look to the ground and try to focus on it I feel as if I should have stayed home in bed Bending over I slowly reach for it Then feel my face suddenly kissing the ground Now the happy smile that I painted on my face Has been smeared into a big ugly frown Standing back up and trying to gather myself I slowly begin to reach into my empty hat But the dove that was supposed to be hidden in there Is no longer where it should be at So I reach to my sleeve for some flowers Only to notice they are no longer there I happen to pull out some fine ladies undies To my amazement I think,what a nice pair Then I reach to my other sleeve for something Though so afraid of what it might be I pull out a picture of my drunken self standing In a photo box by a bar,casually taking a pee In such embarassment I then begin to stumble These big floppy shoes are too heavy for me today I then reach into my pocket to find this here poem Leaving me wonder,how will I to pay off my bar tab this way
Danny Boy Kearley:1-14-13 Not at all a true story..Ha,ha... Just some silly words from my head(Hic-up) :o)

    I thought this would be a little weird given the title, but I actually laughed out loud. Thumbs up.

    WHY, THASH TOTALLY (HIC)DICULOUS!!! Well done, thrice-blessed One! (OK, maybe twice-blessed; my Comment-Conscience has just asked me not to condone the excessive consumption of inebriating beverages). "Sometimes I laugh so hard the tears run down my legs." ~Author Unknown

    hahaha, a very fun one, it's always a good way to do humor by poking fun at oneself, DAn. I do it sometimes too!
