S'more Why's



Could you tell me why most hippopotami Weigh about the same as a truck In the animal kingdom diets aren't common So they're really poop out of luck A donkey with wings or an ass that sings Quite an image I have in my mind Some like listening to a cockatoo warble But I think that's quite asinine Now why do most newborns poop at will They emerge without any manners Farting in front of friends and neighbours Makes you stutter and stammer When misplacing an important document You find it in the last place you look Why not look there in the first place I wonder You'll be stunned at the short time it took Admit I ain't perfect but who the hell is Sometimes I dribble in my beard Imagine it sounds quite disgusting to you guys A snack for when bedtime is near Why do we cringe at the sound of one's nails Screeching across a blackboard Sends chills up and down our li'l ole spine Can feel 'em right now, oh Lord! © Jack Ellison 2013
