Quaffed

Ole Kelly worked at the brewery And was pretty good at that But one day he lost his balance And fell into a vat O’Reilly went to Kelly’s house Someone had to tell his wife He said Kelly fell into the beer And there he lost his life Kelly’s wife was beside herself Said I know those vats are slick Please tell me he didn’t suffer That my Kelly went real quick He said I don’t think he suffered ma’am As far as I could see In fact while he was swimming in there He climbed out twice to pee Another old Irish joke that I just had to set to rhyme.

Bob, Profanity is almost required for expressing how enjoyable your poem is! It's laugh out loud funny, and the temp reads so nicely. All the people at the library here are wondering, "What's he cracking up over there about?" Hahaha! Viva Quaffed! ~ECMc
