The Ballad of Sparky the Crossdresser


                           A crossdressing fool named Sparky,
                           thought his God-given tool was malarkey.
                           So he grabbed it and said,
                           "It's off with your head.
                            The comments you raised were all snarky."

                           With his anatomy now rearranged,
                           his toolless box looked so strange.
                           This once burly stud,
                           now covered with blood,
                           looked happy and somewhat deranged.

                           The police were called to the scene,
                           when the piece he appalled in between,
                           he glued to his butt,
                           not knowing for what,
                           but he thought it befitting a queen.

                           He couldn't grow it back like a skink.
                           So he was known as "the missing dink."
                           He was given a citation
                           for self-mutilation,
                           and a slap on the rear with a wink.

Charlie's New Ballad - no more Chicken of the Sea

The lawsuit by StarKist is valid.
Their long time promoter’s new ballad
warns fish to stay clear
of fisherman’s pier,
or end up in somebody’s salad!
