OUr timing must have been bad, as our fort as kids, did hit the ground, as did our heads...

Tree Housin’…


Built for us monkeys,

Till we got older and more hunky,

Went up on it the other day, we did,

Just like when I was a kid…


Apparently our combined weight,

Now that we were grown,

Was too much for,

Its foundation of stone…


The old girl did a bit of a moan and a groan,

Giving us fair warning of an impending doom,

Crashing down she came,

Landing with a hollow thud,

Or was that the sound of my head,

When it hit the mud…?

Lucky you hit mud, not concrete! See, this proves we need more natural stuff like mud, and less artificial stuff like concrete.
