Ding Dong, Texas



Met this gal from Ding Dong, Texas Had warts all over her bum I know because she showed me them I got up and started to run Her six foot twelve hulk of a brother Said, "Boy! Best ya sits y'self down!" I knew I should listen to brother Luke The meanest damn dude in town! So Anitabath, his ding-a-ling sister Cozied up and quietly whispered "How's if we have some fun in the hay?" I quivered at having to kiss her! I said okay as this ding-a-ling stripped I cringed at her wart covered bum Saw a chance and tried to scurry away But Luke was on guard with a gun! "Just where d'ya think yer goin', sonny?" As he blocked my escape with his brawn Just then I spotted a tiny opening Took off like a skitterish young fawn! I heard the ominous crack of his rifle Felt around but could feel no pain Got into my pick-up and took off like a shot Never gone near Ding Dong again! There's definitely a moral in this sad little tale Don't hang out in a bar in Ding Dong Less you're ready for some Texas hospitality Say, "So long, sayonara, I'm gone"! © Jack Ellison 2012

    I lived in Texas for almost 20 years and I never heard of Ding Dong Texas until you wrote this poem, this is hilarious my friend! I would've hated to be in that situation that you were in within this story! This is a fascinating and delightfully funny piece, Great Work!!

    Lol, oh my gosh, too funny, Jack. That's what you get for wandering into unknown places. That's Texas hospitality for ya. They said "it's like another country out here", don't you know? Love it. Too good.

    Sounds like Luke and 'Nita were wanting to ring some wedding bells; you were lucky to escape! Good 'un, Jack, had to google Ding Dong to check it out.
