Daedalus watched the birds on high,
And wished that he could also fly;
But he did more than wish, bright man,
He studied wings and made a plan.
Paris, visiting Mycenae,
Spotted Helen, the city’s queenie;
She spotted him; the sparks they flew;
Her hubby, Menelaus, never knew,
The Princess Rapunzel lived high in a tower,
Where a wicked old witch had once placed her,
And day after day, from hour to hour,
Deep boredom and lonliness faced her.
“Drain the bowl, each fearless soul!
Let the world wag as it will;
Let the heavens howl, the devil growl,
Drain the bowl, and fill! ”
Sausage and onions,
And deep mozzerella,
Ground beef and mushrooms
Make life vita bella;
Once there was a lonely bear,
Who lived in the land of I-Don’t-Care;
Who did what he did
With a shuffle and a shrug,
Down past the roses in the flow'ring dell
live a very tiny family in a walnut shell;
You may pass them by and never know,
for they're very, very small in their bungalow.
‘Twas the night before Samhain
And through Usher’s flat,
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even a bat.
“You’re drunk again, George.”
“That’s my own affair.”
“You’ll wake up the kid.”
“I don’t friggin’ care.”
