Down by the blabbing(babling) brook
Where daddy lived as a boy
Was a place of quietude and simplicity
        But one filled with  many memories
Some being beyond my apprehension(comprehension)
     Some of the tall tales he did repeat
                      Like one day
When my aunt's new beau came to take her out for a treat

He knocked 'pon the door and the oldest brother did answer

The beau said that he had come to see Mary where was she

My uncle answered to everyone's disguise(surprise)
                           She is her bedroom cleaning out her drawers(dresser drawers)

That is when my uncle felt sister was hostage(hostile) and might just tutor(neuter) him when 
she returned home from her date to the ice cream store.    

A work using malapropisms(absurd or humorous misuse of a word, especially by confusion
with one of similar sound...

Not for the contest..Just for fun...
