Roger, Dave and the Fifty Cent Piece

Remembering fellow alumnus Dennis Rodman. You learned so well from your predecessors, Roger and Dave.

Roger and Dave, of all the Epsilon-Theta brothers,
Raunchier by far than all the others!
Always in devious competition
Was their individual mission.
Roger, the epitome of Little Dixie hanky panky.
Dave, the not to be outdone upstate New York yankee.
Both were classic partying football players,
And the ultimate in mischief purveyors.
Cruising in Roger's vintage black Cadillac sedan,
Roguery was always their plan.
Transporting beer kegs to our beach party in a hearse!
Their antics grew steadily worse!
Once even tape recording each other's amorous activities!
Not much in the way of sensitivities.
One late night at the diner Eat 'n Ease,
The kind of place that even the paper napkins were reused and had fleas,
Roger challenged Dave to bed a local hooker!
She was clearly no looker!
Nothing about to brag.
Rumored to carry her own head size paper bag!
Dave to her made no pretense.
Telling her that he was almost broke with only fifty cents!
Taking Dave's money down to his last nickel.
Quickly into the diner storeroom - she was not fickle!
Roger was stunned!
By Dave he was finally outdone?
Dave never let Roger forget
His winning their unusual bet!
Roger's ego was flatter than a road kill cat.
For with his fifty cents she purchased Dave fries to go with THAT!

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
