Naked As a Jailbird

There was an old dude lived in Syracuse Went naked outdoors without an excuse Got sent off to the looney bin, Joining both his kith and his kin Far as I know, he was never let loose.

Evidently, Shirley. Enough so that they keep him locked up. When writing this, I just took him to be a careless drunk! Thanks so much for your comments. I always enjoy hearing from you. Have a splendid weekend!

I actually lived for a summer in Syracuse (New York). Great countryside, wonderful streams and lakes for swimming. Great memories. Yes, let him out! Another fine write, Milton!

Thanks, Joe. Probably should by now! I don't think I have ever been in the Syracuse area, but I've heard lovely things about it.

I wish he would be let loose; I bet he would be fun!

Milton, you couldn’t know how deeply I’d fall into this! A sort of light read and Nicole, precisely penned…but OH the memories it brought! The dad of my beloved freshman roommate, as she’d tell it, would get drunk & go out in their yard naked. Better than drunk & screaming at family. Thanks 4 brought memories xox
