Philosophy of the underground to speak...

Subterranean Philosophy…


If you do live in a sewer,

No worries have you about taking a dump,

But you would be wary, when squatting,

As to where you do place your rump…J


If you do live in a subway,

More than likely you won’t see much, if any, of the suns rays, 

Be cautious of that third rail,

As if you touch it, you will be quite well cooked,

And most likely never stale…J


If you do find yourself to burrow,

Like maybe that of a rabbit or wood chuck,

Try not to do so in any muddy muck,

Or you may find in your burrow, you are permanently stuck…J


To live in a cave, like a hibernating bear,

You would first have to do so naked, yes bare,

You would not even be able to wear any underware,

Better it would be if you were to grow all over some hair…J


Hope you did find,

The philosophy herein not to be from my behind,

I wrote it with care in hopes you would find it humorous,

Hope you do not need to with regards me, my poems be maligned…?

"Maligned?" I think not, EM! You are on a roll... which is something relating to toilet paper, I suppose... then there's the chat about "buns" (suitable for weinies?) oops... got shady there.

This is another fine mess of marvelous hilarity ala... em... YOU! (grin) Love it... katy xox
