Butts For A Butt

Ned was grandma's billy goat, 
The meanest goat in town; 
Every time you crossed his path, 
He'd try to butt you down!

Buddy was our neighbor, 
A twisted lil' teen; 
He always nagged that billy goat, 
For that's what made him mean!

Fate caught up to Buddy, 
We had an awful scare; 
He slipped on muddy soil, 
With his butt in open air!

Ned saw his target, 
"KA-THUD!!"...was all we heard; 
Buddy flew across the way, 
I could swear he passed a turd!

Buddy tried to squeeze himself, 
Between a wooden gate; 
Mercy failed to comprehend, 
By then, it was all too late!

Trapped like a weary mouse, 
Bud's rump in open view; 
Ned landed fifty thumps, 
His butt turned black n' blue! 

It took us all to save him, 
Talk about a battered fig; 
All the while he was screamin', 
Like a frightened little pig!

Hot baths and epsom salts, 
A lesson Buddy gained; 
He slept beneath a ceiling fan, 
To ease his throbbing pain! 

Oh, what a laughing stock,
We teased him constantly;
"BILLY GOAT!!", we'd often cry,
Just to watch him flee!

    Thanks Andrea! I have quite a few. I've been a member since 2005. Unfortunately, I've deleted quite a few. I spent a lot of time on other sites but PS is by far the best. This time I'm back to stay. Thanks so much for your kindness and support!...Milt
