No More Belly Flops!
A belly flop, I was dared to do
After my beer, I headed for the pool-
A diving board jump!
Enormous splash- all my plump
Bystanders drenched, Me- feeling like a fool.
Next time they want a boisterous cheer,
Hopefully not until next year-
No more jelly belly
Stay away from the deli
I'll dive like a swan-with tight new gear~!
*Alternative ending; with a tight new rear~!
