Big Head

I have a ridiculously large head, I think I’d opt for a smaller one instead. Oh, sure, you say that it suits me fine, That’s because yours isn’t near as big as mine. I bet that it weights at least thirty pounds, It looks even bigger than it sounds. When I lay it down on my waterbed, A tsunami rises so my wife has said. When I go to try on winter hats, The clerk gives me ones with ventilation slats, That way when it’s not on sitting my dome, It can be used as a guest room for my home. My giant head is entirely too big, Someday archeologists will venture on dig, They’ll think that I came from the highland, On the west end of Easter Island. Little kids stare up at my noggin, They think it could be used for a toboggan. Or a shed to hold random hodgepodge, That clutters things up in their dad’s garage. Don’t tell me that it’s due to my intellect, It makes your judgment sound suspect. It’s because my brain is fashioned like a brick, And my skull is so very, very thick.

    Maybe you know more with your treasure. Don't knock it, you are used to it! PS I don't think your head looks big at all!

    Oh, TONY, you do crack me up! I, too, have a very, very thick skull. Love the way you think and then slap it on paper. I always enjoy your writes. I meant to tell you, my girl has responded to antibiotics well. Thanks for your prayers! She is scheduled for an ultrasound, to make sure all her wee internals are where and how they should be. If you have time for one more prayer, it would surely be appreciated. Cheers, chum. You stop the world from gettin' a bit to glum...

    Good things come in thirty pound packages, though it's not the weight of the box that counts but the treasure inside, oh those joyful treasures boy you water the inside of that house as joyfully as God waters his earthly garden, hugs my little brick man, vie
