Another Four

ALWAYS CHECK YOUR TANK Johnny Smiths gang had just robbed the town bank With gang members scar face Mike, and old Hank Their getaway car Wasnt going far Cos Hank forget to put gas in the tank... SHIVER ME TIMBERS An old pirate had woodworm in his leg Wanted to go ashore for a new peg As he walked down the gangway His old withered stump gave way He cursed as o'er the side went his rum keg... THE GRADUATE It was Elaine Robinsons wedding day Poor Ben shouted through the window "no way" Mrs Robinson just glared All the congregation stared As Elaine and Ben made their getaway... CAN'T SIT A window cleaner was cleaning the glass Spied the owner in bed with a young lass Asked could he join in the fun Saw the owner get his gun Now cant sit cos of buckshot in his a.s.s... Written 1st September 2020.

(Giggle) I love the first one and the last one best. With no gas in the car, it will not move. Promise you that. And, watch out for window cleaners, looking in, just wanting to have some fun- and those with guns. This is cute and clever. I am smiling. :) Brandy
