Here’s to the young lad named TRUSTY,

back then the girls were quite BUSTY,

no wonder his thoughts were LUSTY.

Lately, that thinking’s getting DUSTY,

cause the joint(s) is/are getting RUSTY!

*For the Monorhyme contest using every rhyme I ever heard with my name growing up.

    Enjoyed the humor, John. I'd rather be busy and surely would be a bit more lusty if I weren't so rusty. Congratulations on your success in the contest. Love, Carolyn
