Nuclear Waste Medicine Convention

My friends Rosie, Hammond and me
Had insomnia and were in the kitchen one Sunday
Discussing The Nuclear Waste Medicine Convention
We wined and dined and had a good old time,
Hammond in his Spandex boxer shorts and
me feeding Tid- Bits of Listerine soaked tissue
to my crazy, vacuum salesman biting Bichon Friese,

"Are we going to go to that gig?" we all asked eath other
After all, the convention was held on  a UFO.
"Ahh, heck, maybe we should go," we deliberated
"Otherwise we may be in Dire Straits and infiltrated!"

So hence we went- to the Nuclear Waste Medicine Convention
Speaker talked about lunar craters and wormholes.
Me, I was drifting off to sleep, as Rosie
held her hands to her ears as if in pain-
Hammond asked,"What is there to gain? Let's go
and blow this idiot convention."

There was nothing to gain except a fun way to go
Riding around in a UFO.


A. Green

And it is scary..they leaving for the world out there! I can only pray and leave it, as there's nothing I can do, anyway. Have a good evening..I've been absent and will be for some time as I'm taking some courses so I'll catch you here someday! Love, Audrey

    This gave me a lot of laughs, Amy, even the thought of a "Nuclear Waste Medicine Convention." This is such a fun challenge, isn't it. So glad Catie came up with this special way to remember Tom Bell. Love, Carolyn
