The Town Drunk

The town drunk felt a dire need to wee-wee!

     In the park he found a sycamore tree.

          As the cops led him away,

               The old souse was heard to say,

                    "Where e'er you be, let yer water flow free!"

    Hi Robert; This is good. I thought you were going to write about President Grant. I went to visit his home, when I lived up mNorth. They say that at one time he was the town drunk. Thank you for liking ( Horse Deal ) Lucilla
