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.

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
