Don't know if I've ever told you before
But I'm the creative director
Of our cool little community newspaper
It's quite the people connector
It's all about events and the 'goings on'
That interest the local folks
But I'm not averse to lighting things up
With an abundance of silly jokes
Keeps me out of mischief every day
Instead of walking the streets
Scaring all the little old ladies to death
Offering them goodies and sweets
Guess I sound like a lecherous old man
But I do get lonely at times
That's when Cathie chains me to the porch
But I'm a sweet old lovable kind!
So it's finally out, now you guys can see
When not concocting silly rhymes
I try to find other ways to amuse me
Till Cathie calls me in at nine!
