Fam'ly Values Rock
The average Rockwell portrait of Ol' Hick
Who cottons to the chores of daily life
A pretty picture spreads a square inch thick
Of all the good times with a carvin' knife--
The Bricks here free from want are painted round
The supper table where the thankful bless
The turkey vittles in its juices drowned
As Frank, Hank, Lank, and Hick Brick talk success--
And oh my gosh! Them mouths them mouths beget!
And golly! What a great big fryin' pan!
And Jim'ny Cricket! Seventh helpin's yet!
And dang! Just get a load of that clogged can!
Yep, good ol' Rock done painted life right true--
And then gone off a-catchin' fish to stew.
Dedicated with Respect
families with no children--or other pets
