Bad For Your Bum (Fun Poem 54)

A friend of mine
went for a smoke
a couple of days ago.
To get out of the wind
he backed behind
a Hawthorn bush
and got a thorn
stuck up him bum.
Now cigarettes all carry
a public health warning
stating they are bad for your health,
but I think there should
be another warning saying
it also bad for your bum.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
