The Poetry Book

Seated one day at the Library
Puzzled and confused
I chanced upon a poetry book
Which delighted and amused
The read held me in stitches 
It was the funniest book in town
And I nearly messed my britches
So I had to put it down
But I returned to finish
This hilarious book of rhyme
And I finally went and bought this book
So I could read it any time

    Jon This was funny, cute, hilarious and made me smile. Next time you need to bring extra britches with you just in case you find another book like this. LOL Have a great day

    Jon; I love this. When we like something - I guess it's better to buy it. It has been said - that people that laugh live a happier life. I do believe that you are one of those people. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    Have you read any of Frank Jacob's works? Hilarious. He wrote poems for Mad Magazine. He's written several books. I'll soup mail you one that I know by heart.
