Improving My Mind
I was sitting in my chair watching the Big Eye
Trying my best my brain not to fry.
I thought, Why am I wasting my time sitting here?
So I strolled to the kitchen to get me a beer.
A delicious drink known never to fail,
A big frosty mug of dark brown ale.
Sat back down and turned off the telly
And poured some ale into my belly.
It’s been a long time since I graduated college
So I wished to do something
To improve my knowledge
I picked up my copy of Sports Illustrated
To see how the Lakers ball team was rated.
Expected to find if my home team would win it
But instead viewed a bikini
With a beautiful girl in it.
It was the Swimsuit Issue, Golly Gee!
A better selection I never did see.
So I checked them all out, noting their measure
And I’ll have to say it sure was a pleasure
This search for knowledge is very heady
And I feel much more educated already.
Now that this viewing has improved my mood
I’ll try for an advanced degree in pulchritude.
