Twelve Days

On the twelfth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Twelve toilet bowls
Eleven rolls of Charmin
Ten lords a farting
Nine plungers plunging
Eight overflows
Seven maids a scrubbing
Six noses sniffing
Five c-o-n-s-t-i-p-a-t-e-d  c-o-w-b-o-y-s
Four tiny turds
Three velvet pickles
Two dingleberries
And a can of lilac Febreze
Craig Cornish,  Dec. 18, 2012, For PD's 12 Days Contest

    P.S. -- I checked the lyrics and they are of course: French hens....I forgot. 3 French hens. I did see a variation of the lyrics use Cornish hens though.

    Right on, Craig, you even included two dingleberries. I found this to be a very entertaining poem. Do the original lyrics have cornish hens in them?

    Also dingleberries are a close second to cranberries particularly during the holiday season and I think are a nice juxtaposition to the tartness of the cranberries--thank you for noticing.

    Thank you Chris but I pay no attention to the hens now since my family sold off the rights to Frank Purdue many years ago after he agreed to keep the Cornish name attached!!??
